I was born and raised in Southern California and have lived in three countries, three states, and a gazillion different cities. I write mostly sci-fi, fantasy, and romance for readers ages sixteen and up. When I'm not scribbling, I love traveling; misquoting movies and TV shows; and pretending to be a celebrity chef.
I began telling stories when I was five and began writing them down when I was six. I was painfully shy as a child. Writing and reading provided an escape from the scary world. In fact, I was so introverted, I once wrote a story about a girl who got rejected by her imaginary friend and the story was based on true events. Thankfully, as I got older I grew out of the shyness, for the most part, but I never let go of my books or my pencil.
