I’m a city girl/desert rat born and raised in Southern California, who grew up loving to daydream. I’ve traveled a lot and lived in different cities around the country, which taught me how different we all are. The biggest lesson I’ve learned is that we are all more than cliches and stereotypes, and I write to capture our truths in my stories. I also love to cook. I love a fine dining experience, you know Top Chef style, but without the fine dining price tag. And I love a good book that has the power to take me someplace I’ve never been. But most of all, I love authentic displays of kindness within myself and others.
