I am an actress and author currently based in Orlando, Florida. My first novel, Swept to Sea, was published when I was 16 years old, and I have been writing ever since. I currently have 3 novels published in the Ladies of the Caribbean series. I'm a Midwest girl at heart, born and raised in Kansas City, MO. I earned my BFA in Theatre Arts-Acting from Stephens College. I also have a passion for theatre for young audiences, and was a teaching artist at TRYPS Institute in Columbia, MO. I made the move from Kansas City to Orlando to work at Disney World in Entertainment Costuming, and visit the theme parks on nearly every day off.
