Hello! Welcome to

I’m so happy you stopped by! This website is where I blog about writing, setting goals, and chasing dreams. So if you’re interested in that kind of stuff, curious about the books I write, or wondering what it’s really like to live a writer’s life, grab a latte or smoothie ~ whatever fuels you today. That’s what I’ll be doing!

Oh, and by the way, I’m thrilled to introduce you to the entire Crimson Five middle grade series which includes: SPIN THE GOLDEN LIGHT BULB, FLIP THE SILVER SWITCH, and the newest: POP THE BRONZE BALLOON from Amberjack Publishing, an imprint of Chicago Review Press. For more information, click on The Crimson Five Books.

I hope you find some motivation while you’re here because if there’s one thing you should know about me, it’s that I love inspiring my friends to make their dreams come true. No matter what your goal, no matter what your wish, know that it is possible and that you can make it happen. It took me so long to hold my first published books in my hands and if I can make my dream come true, so can you! So, are you ready to chat books and dreams? Me too!

The Crimson Five make their International Debut!

In the newest book in the Crimson Five middle grade series, Kia Krumpet and her team of young inventors embark on the Swirl and Spark Creativity Tour, the highest level of the Piedmont Challenge. To solidify their spots at the Piedmont Inventor’s Prep School once and for all, they’re challenged to create a final life-changing invention with Team France and Team Switzerland.

In order to save Piedmont, and the futures of all kids with big dreams around the world, Kia, Ander, Mare, Jax, and Jillian must unlock the invention and lead a new connected team—the ultimate test of imagination and teamwork.
