I was born on an American military base in Germany and raised in rural North Carolina. Eager for urban life, I took the train to New York City in my early twenties and lived in Los Angeles for more than a decade where my debut novella, Urban Faery: A Modern Fantasy, was originally conceived as a pilot for a television series.
I now call Saint Petersburg, Florida home where I live with an eccentric Welshman and a cat named Guinevere. I am blessed with two beautiful daughters who live in Southern California.
A graduate of the University of North Carolina School of the Arts with a degree in Production Stage Management, I worked in both educational and professional theaters throughout the United States before navigating into the world of film production where I was employed as a producer and director's assistant in Hollywood.
Considering myself a late creative bloomer, I self-published my first book in 2019 at the age of 45. Book two of the Urban Faery series will be released in spring 2020.
I also love photography and spending time in nature, and I collect old film cameras and typewriters.
