About the author

From the adventures of Peter Rabbit to the halls of Hogwarts, fantasy has always held a special place in my heart. My parents can testify that I often left the public library with teetering stacks of books, unable to choose between one spellbinding story and the next. Eventually, I started writing tales of my own, a hobby that persisted through high school and beyond.

After a difficult few (many) years in my twenties, I finally dove back in and started working in earnest on my debut series, A Crown of Lilies. Self-publishing has been a whirlwind of trial-and-error, and I am eternally grateful for all those who came before, whose advice and feedback have helped pave the way for the rest of us.
