I love being near water, any kind–I grew up in between swamps and a river and now live at the bottom of Alabama, right where the antebellum lady dips her toes into the Gulf of Mexico.

My YA Southern mystery, THE EXISTENCE OF BEA PEARL, releasing Summer 2021 with the super awesome ladies at Owl Hollow Press, showcases this love of all things swampish and Spanish moss as my main character channels her inner Nancy Drew to unravel the mystery of her lost brother.
I have a ten year-old Mermaid Girl and a seven year-old Dinosaur Boy. We love to swim and build sandcastles. And bury things because, hello, pirates. We also like to spend time outside and observe nature which is where the idea of the little squirrel with the bristly-as-a-chewed-up-pinecone tail originated. Look for SASSAFRAS AND HER TEENY TINY TAIL coming soon with M-C Publishing.
My drivers license says I’m an adult but I’m pretty sure its wrong. Though I’m almost positive I’m a mermaid.
