I was born in Kansas City, MO and grew up in Overland Park, KS. I have two younger sisters, which I thought was two too many until I grew up and realized how amazing they are.

I graduated with a degree in business from Baylor University and went on to earn my MBA from Baker University. I currently work as a writer and a children's bookseller. I specialize in books for juvenile readers. I am currently writing a series about the American Colonies, beginning with the voyage of the doomed ship, Sea Venture.

I live and work in a suburb of Kansas City where I volunteer at the local zoo, and a nearby animal shelter. I also enjoy spending time with her nieces and nephew who give me feedback on my books.
