About The Author

YA Sci-Fi Award-Winning Author

I am a Veterinary Technician and love to help animals on their way to recovery. The job can be both physically and emotionally demanding, but also rewarding. In Veterinary Medicine, nothing beats seeing a patient happy and healthy after recovering from an illness or injury.

I have an incredible husband who I am happy to share this ride with. He is my best friend and my rock. We have a beautiful daughter who taught us that love has no boundaries. Never in my life would I have imagined my heart could love so much. We also have a very fun, spontaneous Husky named after Felicity Smoak from Arrow--yes, we are nerds. Our lazy cat's stomach is like a black hole or a pocket dimension--like a Flerken's--and she is not happy when you pick up the dog food bowl. I don't blame her for diet restrictions; diets are hard, and ice cream is life.

The Hybrian Series started as a dream--typical, right? My mind is constantly conjuring up crazy dreams--just ask my poor husband who gets to hear about them! He's always like, "No wonder you're always tired." Apparently, it’s not just life and being a mom😉. I fell in love with the story and wanted to make it a reality on paper so I could share it with the world, and I can't wait to share it with you!

A few of my favorite quotes are:

"Mistakes don't make you a failure, but beating yourself up makes you feel like one." -Frank Sonnenberg

"You miss one hundred percent of the shots you don't take." -Wayne Gretzky (inspired by my high school basketball coach)

"Never let the fear of striking out keep you from playing the game." -Babe Ruth (inspired by a former softball coach and now father-in-law)
