Award winning author, I write in several genres including young adult adventure fantasy, paranormal romance, and soon science fiction mysteries.
Inspired by living abroad in France and Quebec, I love creating magical tales of romance, mystery, and adventure that empower women and girls to be the heroes of their own lives.
For fun, I enjoy walking my neighborhood, gardening on my patio, and watching movies and traveling with my husband, author Ezra Barany. We live in Oakland, California with a piano and over 1,000 books.
When not writing or playing, I run her own company helping novelists as a book coach, speaker, and teacher to help them write, market, and publish their books to the delight of their readers.
