Though I’d always daydreamed otherwise, I live a pretty ordinary life. I was born, raised and still live with my own family in Austin, Texas (a.k.a. the awesomest city in the world). At various times I wanted to be a pharmacist, an IT mega-gazillionaire, a civil rights lawyer, and a diplomat, but ended up working a regular 9-to-5 instead. An avid reader, I began writing stories as a creative outlet and discovered my passion for storytelling. I still have a day job (a girl’s gotta buy books), but I spend my nights tapping away on the keyboard.
