I started telling stories before I knew how to write them, filling pages with pictures and audio cassettes with words. This passion for storytelling grew every year to become not only my focus of graduate study, but an escape from abuse and savior from postpartum depression. That savior has since transformed into the young adult fantasy Fallen Princeborn: Stolen.
Stories are the fire that warms the soul. They melt fear, ignite hope, and spark relationships like nothing else. I’m honored you seated yourself here by my hearth to enjoy my fiction’s light. Please feel free to visit often, for there are many treasures bizarre and fantastic in my imagination waiting to speak with tongues of flame. Then we can talk about the writers that refuel us, and the stories that stir us like marshmallow sticks poking a campfire’s embers. Let’s send the fire’s sparks flying like so many fireflies into summer’s night, and invite more out of the cold darkness.

Fallen Princeborn: Stolen
ISBN-13: 978-1-949428-00-1 (Paperback)
Desperate, they breached the Wall to hunt humans. But they made one critical mistake. They took her sister.
In rural Wisconsin, an old stone wall is all that separates the world of magic from the world of
man—a wall that keeps the shapeshifters inside. When something gets out, people disappear.
Escaping from an abusive uncle, eighteen-year-old Charlotte runs away. She takes her younger sister with her, swearing to protect her. Then their bus breaks down by a creepy old farm, and her sister is wiped from human memory.
But something inside Charlotte remembers. So she goes over the Wall in a frantic rescue attempt,
accidentally awakening a handsome prince, with an equally dark past, from an ancient curse and gaining control of a powerful weapon, his magic dagger.
Her only chance to save her sister hinges on her courage and an uneasy alliance with some of the very monsters that feed on humanity.
Welcome to River Vine, a shrouded hinterland where dark magic devours and shapeshifters feed.
