I began writing my debut novel Sapphire during my senior year in high school. Four years later, Sapphire was published by Christopher Matthews Publishing--it has been a dream come true! Just like my novel, my favorite books to read are usually young adult with adventure and romance. When I'm not reading or writing, I enjoy hiking--particularly in national parks, watching movies and walking my dog "Buzz Lightyear." I have a BS in psychology from Florida State University and an MA in Counselor Education from the University of Montana. I currently reside in the beautiful state of Montana.
