Writer in Pacific Northwest

I am a customer service career professional currently working temporary assignments with a work history in library employment, high level government customer service, and office support. I have a Master of Arts degree in History from the University of Portland, where I specialized in Medieval-Renaissance culture, the 19th Century, Women's History, and Fashion. I also have a Bachelor of Arts degree with a triple major in English, Psychology, and History and a minor in French.

Currently, I am the Secretary of the local Jane Austen Society, JASNA Oregon and SW Washington Region. I write event blog posts for the website and also regional event news for the national publication, JASNA News.

My memberships include: the Jane Austen Society of North America (JASNA), Romance Writers of America, and Phi Alpha Theta National History Honor Society. With such a background, I thrive on research and enjoy sharing information.

Additionally, I write paranormal romance with a twist (both contemporary and historical); historical nonfiction, especially women's history; short stories; and poetry.

I also edit both fiction, nonfiction, and poetry. To contact me, please book a consultation or email me below.

My all time favorite quote is: “To know is nothing at all; to imagine is everything" by Anatole France.

Happiness, joy, and positivity inspires me along with faith, truth, and simplicity. Follow me on my journey to publication and beyond.
