Welcome to my website
I write teen fantasy novels. Inspirations include fairy tales, folklore, and the magical experiences of living abroad (mostly in France) and aboard the sailboat Adventure.
Here on the site you’ll find more about how I research and write, the occasional blog post (mostly about novels I’ve enjoyed), book news, and links to other resources.
