I grew up in the Flathead Valley, graduated from Montana State, and currently live in the Seattle area. I've been a creative most of my working life: sewing backpacks, designing logos, illustrating, and now writing fiction in the young adult genre. I love to write what I love to read, flirty romances that are light on the angst and heavy on the fun. I've written and indie-published two books so far, Dealing with Blue and Burnout, both finalists in the annual PNWA Literary Contest. When I'm not writing I'm doodling and making blackout poems with old proof copies. Some are for sale at ESPIALdesign on Etsy.
