I write romantic fantasy fiction that is full of passion, mystery, and magic (the real-life and not-so-real-life kind).
Along my journey, I’m sharing advice on the craft of storytelling, overcoming deep-seated creative blocks (I used to be a chronic never-finish-anything-er), and dealing with the daily challenges of building a life around what you love.
I used to think of stories as escapism, a way for me to take a break from reality and step into a different world, but I’ve realized they’re more than an escape, they’re a reminder.
They remind us what it means to be human, what we are capable of overcoming, and what we are capable of feeling — things like hope, passion, and yes — magic.
I learn more about myself and this crazy ride that we’re on by stepping into a character’s shoes. So, they aren’t just entertainment; stories are an education in the human experience. They transport us to other worlds and show us a different way of looking at our own.

my path to personal + creative freedom
I’VE ALWAYS BEEN A DREAMER. As a kid, I knew I wanted to be a writer, own my own business, and squeeze as much out of this brief adventure called life as I could, but what I didn’t know was the inner journey I would have to take first to make these things a reality.
Fear, anxiety, and self-doubt came in hard and strong. I got lost in them for a while. I stopped writing for long periods of time and buried myself in work that didn’t light me up or make me excited to get out of bed in the morning. The life I’d been dreaming of living kept feeling more and more unreachable as my creative blocks kept me in a cycle of unfinished projects.
My life didn’t feel like mine. I questioned who I was, what I was capable of, and what I truly wanted.
I knew I had to find my way back and believed, deep in my soul, that it was possible to find peace, balance, and passion in my life.
SO, I GOT VERY REAL WITH MYSELF AND WENT ON A SELF-GROWTH JOURNEY.
I discovered that I wasn’t alone in all of these things I was experiencing. Slowly but surely, I began to tell the difference between fear and my intuition. I was able to recognize fear even in its best disguises, so I could choose to face it rather than let it trick me into staying inside my comfort zones and fall prey to the creative blocks it manifested. As I became more connected to and trusting of my inner guide, things began to change.
In 2019, I became certified in life coaching and neuro-linguistic programming to expand my understanding of how our mindset and perspective affects our experience of the world and how to reprogram subconscious limiting beliefs.
The key to freeing yourself from the forces that hold you back from squeezing the most out of life, feeling an abundant flow of creativity, and being the truest version of yourself lies entirely within you.
And when you find that inner strength, it helps you flourish in every aspect of your life, including your creativity. It’s all connected and starts with you setting yourself free.
You get to decide what your story is going to be. You just have to embrace that power.
