Yes, It's my real name.


Background Information

I was born and raised in Louisville, Ky. I graduated from Louisville Central High School and briefly tried college but didn't find it to my liking. I have always loved to write. I started with short stories as a child, and moved on to lyrics and poetry through my middle and high school years. Out of Sacrifice, my first novel, was conjured up during my senior year of high school. I finally sat down to write it seven years later. It sucked (in my opinion) but was a great learning experience.

INFLUENCES:
Mark Twain, Louisa May Alcott, F. Scott Fitzgerald, Lois Duncan, Stephen King, Emily Dickinson, Sandra Brown, Maggie Shayne.
