My experiences of living in many countries influence my writing. I love meeting new people, experiencing cultures, reading books and listening to and making music. I also love exploring wherever I am living at the time. You can find more about my books here or click on the above tab. Currently, I live with my husband in Beijing, China. I have an MFA in Writing for Children and Young Adults from Vermont College of Fine Arts. Crossings is my first published novel. In this story, Eliinka makes a perilous journey to a foreign land where she’ll discover the truth about a powerful legend and the hope for peace after centuries of conflict. It is a story of friendship and adventure.
