I live with my family (and too many dogs) in Texas and have a social sciences bachelor's degree. I'm a life-long, avid reader. After some recent life challenges, I've discovered my passion for writing, and I'm reaping the therapeutic benefits! My mind is constantly at work thinking up new characters and scenarios to weave into a relatable story for young adults and adults who are young at heart.
I'm especially interested in how the family, as a social institution, shapes and affects the attitudes, motivations, and goals of young people. I enjoy portraying complicated family dynamics and the catalysts that launch teenagers into adulthood to find their own way in the world.
My hope is that readers of all ages will be entertained, encouraged, and inspired by the characters in my novels as they learn to define relationship boundaries and triumph over obstacles and limitations.
