Mikayla’s journey to authorship began as an only child with a vivid imagination and a voracious appetite for reading and writing. She further cultivated those pursuits upon her acceptance into the Theatre program at the prestigious Governor’s School for the Arts in Virginia. Mikayla then went on to earn a Bachelor’s Degree in Communication with a minor in Theatre from George Mason University. As a newlywed, she moved to Baltimore and began using her spare time to write her first full-length novel, Shades of Secrecy, which both stimulated and was inspired by her kaleidoscopic dreams.

As she makes her way deeper into Sophia’s mind, Kathryn realizes that she may know less about her mother than she ever imagined, and that she must now live in the glaring light of honesty… no matter what the cost.
