About My Work
I love to write fantasy, science fiction, and magical realism because these stories use the fantastical as a way to tackle our everyday problems. They're also really fun!

Here are some stories I am in progress of telling:
Deeper Than Bone
In modern, future Los Angeles, 30-year-old twins and rivals Andrea and Ben are both respective experts in their fields. Andrea is a rising star orthopedic oncologist and Ben is a respected theatre director. When Andrea is set off on a downward spiral of fame and seduction, Ben is propelled into the challenges of bringing his show to Broadway. However, when their personal lives become entangled in their professional lives, they must find a way to unravel the mess, instead of blaming each other for it. I've written 70k+ words of this satirical, adult fiction novel and am currently revising.
Hospice For Gods
Abe and Lara are two teens who've been raised in the Halcyon Hollow - a hospice for Gods of old, from all and any pantheon. When a new patient is dragged through their doors and corrupts the Hollow, Abe and Lara must figure out how to save their friends before it's too late. This book is a YA fantasy and is in progress - I've drafted 17k words thus far.
Untitled YA Project
A high school student must do her family proud and compete in a series of magical trials to win absolute power from the Two Faced Goddess in this YA urban fantasy novel. This WIP is currently being outlined.
Songs About Being Sick
In this musical theatre song cycle, people with physical and/or mental health issues attend a support group to share their pain and grow. This song cycle is halfway done and is being co-written with the lovely Angela Parrish!
Untitled Selkie Project
When a young surfer meets a selkie in human form, they must find the selkie's seal skin before it's too late in this YA slice of life urban fantasy. This WIP is currently being outlined and is being co-written with the wonderful Sinclair Adams!
A Whisper of Magic
Best friends Rose Parker and Scarlett Moreau have been born and raised in the tiny town of Point Roberts, Washington their whole lives. After Rose’s younger brother Oliver is brutally murdered and she discovers she’s a witch, Rose gets pulled into a supernatural world hiding just under their own, while conscripting Scarlett in solving Oliver’s murder before anyone else gets hurt. I've drafted 90k+ words of this New Adult urban fantasy novel and am currently revising.
