Welcome to the debut of my new website. I'll start with a short introduction.
I was born and raised in Southern California suburbia and fell in love with reading, writing, and movies in childhood. When I was around seven years old, I found a book about "real" ghosts in my school library and was both terrified and mesmerized by the idea that ghosts might actually exist. From that point forward, I was hooked on haunting tales.
I grew up and became a writer and editor, and I'm now working on Blackbirds, a young adult gothic historical novel that's a blend of ghost story, mystery, fantasy, horror, love story, and coming-of-age tale, with a touch of steampunk. My goal is to deliver the manuscript to my agent in early 2011. I invite you to follow along to receive the latest news about the novel's journey into print.
