A BRIEF GLIMPSE OF ME...

Ancient Cultures Fanatic To Fantasy Adventurer! Growing up a Navy brat gave me an extreme case of wanderlust and paved the way to becoming certifiably obsessed with ancient cultures, travel, and writing. Living abroad as a child helped to foster a sense of fun and wonderment at the world around me. Suffice to say that I loved my childhood so much so, that perhaps I never really grew up in my own head. Basically, you should never stop playing. The colors are much brighter that way!

I lived in the Czech Republic, and got internationally certified as a Teacher of English as a Foreign Language (TEFL) right after graduating university with a degree in World History (specializing in the ancient Etruscans of Italy). Once proficient in Czech and Italian, I can also speak smatterings of Spanish, Japanese, and French. I can ask where the bathroom is in many languages. In short, I'm a good tourist. I've had the pleasure of visiting over twenty five countries including Italy, the United Kingdom, Japan, Egypt, Peru, Turkey, and South Korea. No plans to stop traveling ever.

When I was eleven I met Ashley, my very best friend and more of a sister, actually. One of the many activities we bonded over in our mutual creative nerdiness was playing Dungeons & Dragons. Over thirty years later, we are still super geeks creating wonderful adventures and characters in between our adult lives.

One of our adventures was the inspiration for my first novel, To Save a World.

Also, I love cheese.
