Welcome to my website! I’m so glad you’re here.

I’m a lover of many different genres, so you’ll see I’ve dabbled all across the board. If you like family drama, suspense, romance, paranormal, western, or even a little humor, I have something to offer you.

I, along with all the other ladies of Story Empire, have come together to create a series written in a shared world. We invite you to journey with us through the generations, following the Hawthorne family and their property atop the fictional Harbor Pointe cliffs in Northern California.

The Harbor Pointe Series

These stories share many commonalities, but they are all stand-alone novellas. You’ll find they span various genres, and they also include references to the other tales. You don’t have to read them in order, though you may find more Easter eggs if you do. My story, A Fathomless Affair, is the sixth in series and goes live on December 5, 2023, but all eight stories are available for preorder today. For more information, click here.


I’m currently working on a few projects. One is a supernatural thriller duology. The first book is done, the second is outlined. I hope to release both within a few months of each other in 2024. A second project is a global thriller that I’m about a third of the way through. The third project is just in beginning stages. Time will tell how it works out. I’ll certainly keep you posted.


My catalog is pretty varied. I like to say I have something for everyone. That’s hyperbole, of course, but it does have broad appeal. Here’s a sample:

I’ve got novellas, a series of vignettes, and lots more coming, too.
