I am an author 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, but I will never give up Florida weather. I earned my BFA in Theatre Arts-Acting from Stephens College. I made the move from Kansas City to Orlando to work at Disney World in Entertainment Costuming, and now I am well immersed into the hospitality industry of Orlando. When I'm not writing, you can catch me kayaking, hiking, and biking through all of Florida's beautiful state parks.
