One Author With Two Names, Bringing You Books For All Ages

Welcome!

I'm a former language arts teacher who now works as a full-time writer, freelance editor, and mother to an adorable little girl. In addition to writing YA novels, I write middle grade books, picture books, and short stories. When I'm not writing or digging my way out from under my enormous To Be Read pile, I'm running and playing with my daughter. I reside in Pennsylvania with my husband, daughter, and two pets. 


I've been writing for as long as I can remember. Poems, short stories, and now finally full-length novels. I've always loved books. Reading is a thing of magic. It has allowed me to enter into worlds I never would have known. I've cried, laughed, and been scared right alongside my favorite characters. And my hope is that people will do the same with my characters.

New Picture Book Release: A Lion's Song

Mike Hannigan is looking for love in all the wrong places. Maybe that’s because having his heart torn to shreds by who he thought was the perfect girl left some emotional scarring. But that’s about to change.


Summer Patterson isn’t like anyone Mike’s dated before, and he can’t help but be intrigued by her. Now if only he could keep his foot out of his mouth long enough to win her over. But when a secret involving Summer brings Mike’s past crashing back to the present, he’ll need some backup from his best friend and wingwoman, Mindy, to sort out the mess.


Will Mike find love before he leaves Timberland College for good?


Pre-order it on Amazon or B&N.

Amara is the only lion who can't roar. Every time she tries, it comes out like a song. She doesn't know what her purpose in the pride will be if she can't be ferocious. But when a Nile crocodile threatens her family, Amara's song just might save them.


Purchase it on Amazon or through Guardian Angel Publishing.
