I was born and raised in an American military community in Germany. I moved to Florida to go to the Ringling School of Art and Design, where I graduated from in 2008 with a BFA, majoring in Illustration.
Even before I knew my letters, I was telling stories by drawing picture books. I've never stopped since (though now I write them down). I published my first novel, "Rapunzel," in January 2012. The parallel novel, "Rapunzel's Prince," came out in 2014.
I live in Avon Park, FL with my husband and two children.
