I was raised on Hercule Poirot, Sherlock Holmes, and Harry Potter. I write as I read: a mixture of mystery, fantasy, and a touch of romance. No matter the genre, I love researching and developing the little details that make a story come alive. I write the books I wish I could find, with immersive world-building, characters with defined, diverse voices, and fresh perspectives on classic ideas.

"Condensation fogged the panels of glass and obscured the trees, ferns, and vines inside. The humid air, heavy with the scents of loam and the fragrance of a hundred exotic blooms, was as familiar and comfortable as a favorite jumper..."
