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 Book Release: The Darkness Within

Signing at Books-A-Million in the Stroud Mall.


After dying of cancer at seventeen and being brought back to life by an evil witch who turned her into a monster, Samantha Thompson thinks she's finally gotten past all the tragedy in her life. Now she's part of a coven of good witches who are helping her and her boyfriend, Ethan Anderson, learn to use the powers they received from other witches. Aside from the fact that Sam and Ethan are still in hiding from their old lives--the ones they had before Sam was brought back to life--things couldn't be better. Sam and Ethan are inseparable. What could go wrong? 


Magic. 


Ethan's magic came from a witch who'd turned as evil as possible, and though his coven thought he'd be fine, the more he uses his magic, the stranger he starts acting. The magic inside him is changing who he is. One minute he's Sam's sweet, perfect Ethan and the next, he's a complete stranger. Even with all her witchy power, Sam is helpless against the magic corrupting Ethan. Can Sam find out what's wrong with him before she loses him to dark magic forever?


Buy it on Amazon or B&N.

I'll be signing copies of The Monster Within and The Darkness Within at Books-A-Million in the Stroud Mall from noon to 3pm. Stop by and see me.
