Author has written 9 stories for Twilight.

I'm a literary and historical fiction novelist—a genre buster, really; lover of all things vintage, a dreamer, feminist, and creator. I burn up the stipulations of this world.

My debut book, Hello LAlaland, was released April 1, 2014. I began writing as a young child, penning anything my mind carried me away to – from poetry to short stories. My first novel was completed at age fourteen.

I love words. They paint imagery more beautifully than a field of poppies.

LAlaland is home.
