About Me

I reside in Buckeye, Arizona, on the outskirts of Phoenix. My family includes my husband Jason, son Nicholas, and elder-cat Porom. I'm originally from Hanford, California. If I wear ruby slippers and tap my heels three times, that's where I go by default.

My literary agent is Rebecca Strauss of DeFiore and Company.

Author photographs by Corey Ralston Photography and were taken in my hometown's historic China Alley.
