Overview

I've been writing for decades and am a self-professed grammar geek. Since 2012, I've been a hybrid-published author of YA paranormal romance and traditional Regency romance. As a member of RWA since 2012, I've copyedited and proofread for several of my local chapter mates and for my critique partners. In 2017, so far, I've also completed two projects for the service, Authors on a Dime. Prior to publishing in romance, I studied screenwriting at UCLA and completed five feature-length screenplays, as well as numerous spec scripts for both primetime and daytime TV.
