Bio

A bit about me…

I was raised in a small suburb where I spent summers hiding under my bed with a book, a flashlight, and dreaming of writing my own novels one day. It wasn’t until a group of teens I mentored gave me a firm nudge that I started sharing my stories with the world. I am now the author of six novels. My first novel, A Chosen Life, won the silver Rone Award for Novel Excellence in 2017. Rune, my fifth novel, brought me to USA Today Bestseller status in 2019 as part of a multi-author collaboration.

I am the proud mama of two college boys and one daughter-in-law. I have worked in publishing and marketing since 2014. In recent years that experience has morphed into my own marketing company that brings together the two things I love most—writing and helping people achieve the success they dream about.

​From marketing packages to one-on-one coaching, to inspirational speaking, I’m here to help you follow your dreams and embrace a life you’ll love to live.
