Who Am I?

I'm an author. I write young adult fantasy novels, and always with romance. I'm also an avid reader and bibliophile, a proud Hufflepuff and Harry Potter nerd, as well as a wife and mother of two.

My greatest loves are chocolate, nature, and my family. I especially love combining all three. The outdoors are an inspiration to me. Winter is my favorite. There is nothing more precious to me than seeing my kids playing together. You will usually find me snuggled up with a good book or expertly quoting movies.

I've been writing my whole life. It started with using loose leaf notebook paper, folding it over, and stapling it so it would read like a book. Each "book" of mine was complete with horrendous drawings of princesses and castles, as well as a horribly plagiarized plot identical to whatever Disney movie or chapter book I was currently obsessed with.

From there, it became whiney teenage soap operas typed out on the computer. Then in high school, I participated in my first NaNoWriMo - National Novel Writing Month. It takes place every November, and the goal is to write 50,000 words in 30 days - and I did it! I've done NaNo ever since, taking a break a few years here and there for my wedding and the birth of my children (I know. No excuse).

I wanted to write about a time period readers hadn't seen very much, and my husband, the Cuban, suggested Cuba during the Spanish-American War. I'd always adored time travel (especially time travel romance), and thus, the Timecaster Chronicles was born.

I've fallen deeply in love with Desi and Oliver and their journey together, as well as Leo and Brielle. They feel more real to me than any other character I've written in the 12+ novels I've finished. And I know this world is what I was meant to write. I was meant to tell this story. My juices are already flowing for the next trilogy I'll write in the Timecaster universe, and I am so excited to share it with you!
