I live in Carroll County, Virginia and was born and raised here. I have also lived in North Carolina and near Myrtle Beach, SC in the past. I now live with my wonderful husband, Richie Matthews, our psychotic cats, Suki and Akira, and our amazing daughter, Bug.

I finally finished and self-published my first fantasy novel, Child of Galina, on the Kindle. I'm in the process of beginning my second novel and hope to have it ready by 2021. In the meantime I'm writing and publishing short stories to the Kindle as well as designing journals, clothing, and more.

Be sure to check out all of my writings at the Writings link, and keep up with my latest news on my blog.
