Biography

Ever since my grandmother's gift of a Nancy Drew book long ago, I've been a prolific reader. From historical romance to mysteries and thrillers, I've always had my nose in a book. Long bus rides back and forth to work went by quickly while caught up in a fictional character's hair-raising adventures. Exile is my first book in The Barren Plains Series and the second book "Brace" is now available.
The third and final book of the series will be out late 2017.

Series

The Extinction Archives
An apocalyptic scourge has destroyed all plant life. Surrounded by toxic chemical barriers to keep the scourge out, the last of the human race live in the few remaining Green Zones. Sixteen-year-old Iris is part of a group of Drifters who fight to survive while evading the lawless groups that prey upon them. Desperate to find safety, they forage small, deserted towns and avoid the dominant city of their zone where corruption and starvation rule. But time is running out, and Iris discovers the key to their survival may come from an unexpected source that will change their lives forever.
