About Me

I grew up among the snow and birch trees of upstate New York, but now make my home in the urban jungle of Atlanta with my husband, daughter, and two cats. Always to be found with my nose in a book, I enjoyed exploring fantastical worlds and now delight in making up my own.

I’m currently working on my Imogene Payne urban fantasy series.

I write YA and Adult fantasy novels and short stories.
