A native of Southern California, I was born in Los Angeles County and grew up in Orange County. I graduated from the University California, Irvine with a degree in psychology and social behavior and I also have an M.A. in Social Emotional Learning. After teaching for several years and interacting with our youth almost daily, I was inspired to write a young adult mystery novel, which morphed into a little bit more. Since everything happens in threes for me (my initials, triple Sagittarius, the third born) the novel (of course) turned into a trilogy and reaffirmed my belief that three’s a charm.
I love all things astrological, metaphysical, and spiritual. With my sun, moon, and rising all in the sign of Sagittarius, I’m as Sagittarius as they come, optimistic, freedom-loving, and ever so tactless. However, in my natal chart, the planet Neptune is also in Sagittarius, so I don’t even know how Sagittarius I am.
My three passions in life are writing, traveling, and soccer. You’ll either find me writing at the beach, on an island somewhere, or on a soccer field. And my three vices are chocolate, pizza, and champagne, and not necessarily in that order.
I reside with my husband and four cats (don’t judge, I’m a sucker for stray animals) in Southern California.
