About me

Industry Publishing
Occupation HarperCollins/Eos author; Freelance editor
Location United States
Introduction I'm an urban fantasy author with Harper Voyager, and I now have two novels under my belt. (Hurrah!) Afterlife and Feast are available for purchase just about anywhere and either one of them will temporarily make you forget about doing laundry, cleaning the bathroom or paying your bills. I love writing scary/romantic stories and I firmly believe in HEAs. I'm an animal lover and a tree-hugger and I sometimes forget that I'm wearing my PJs until I go outside to get the mail.

When you open your eyes underwater, do you ever worry that you'll drown?

Never. I wish I could live in the silent place where light filters through blue ripples and icy water licks my skin ...
