A LITTLE ABOUT ME

I’m usually found with my nose in a book or spinning story-worlds in my head.

I live in Missouri with my weather-mage husband and two supervillain sons (don’t mind the robotic dinosaurs, they’re friendly.)

Some claim I’m half-fae. Don’t listen. It’s just unfounded rumor.

My love of fantasy began at age twelve, when my dad handed me The Lord of the Rings books after listening to them on tape during a family vacation. Nowadays, some of my favorites fandoms include the Cosmere (Brandon Sanderson), Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood, and the Queen’s Thief series as well as more classic works from C. S. Lewis, JRR Tolkien, and JK Rowling.

I love and play Dungeons & Dragons weekly with a group of writer friends, the Paladins. We’re currently on our second campaign, where I am playing a tiefling bard who would rather cheat at cards than play an instrument.

I’m in love with Norse and Celtic mythology, although I love legends from around the world. Few things make me happier than diving into a new mythology and putting together stories from the monsters and heroes that I uncover.

When my husband and kids manage to drag me into the real world for adventures, we love mountain-biking, hiking, camping, skiing, or rock-climbing.

Come see me online! I hang out on Facebook and run a bookstagram account.
