About the Author

I wrote and illustrated my first book for fun in kindergarten. When the teacher asked me to show it to the principal, I thought I'd done something horribly wrong until the principal smiled with her red-painted lips and pressed a sticker to the cover, telling me how much she enjoyed my story about a haunted house. Though it took me some time to realize that writing was my preferred form of expression, I have had a drive to tell stories my whole life. I received my BA in English and my MFA in Creative Writing from San Jose State University in Fiction and Screenwriting. I also co-produce and host the webseries "Happy Hobbit" with my sister for TheOneRing.net, the premiere fansite for J.R.R. Tolkien, and am known as "Kili" on camera. My debut novel, Darkling, was inspired by a dream that most would consider a nightmare. I didn't realize I'd written a story about grief until I was done, and I hope that its message will help others as much as the writing helped me. I have many more books in the works and several belong to series. You can always expect whimsy, romance, and heroines in my stories, so please keep your eyes peeled for the next adventure!
