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, watching movies and walking my dog "Buzz Lightyear." I have a BS in psychology from Florida State University and I now reside in the beautiful state of Montana while pursing a Master's degree in counseling.
