I *wrote* my first book at age 6. It was completely plagiarized, but I spent hours copying it word for word in my best printing, so that should count for something. Years later, I graduated from UCLA with a B.A. in Communication Studies and began working in television casting. After ten years in the industry, I quit my job to go back to school, and received my teaching credential and Masters in Teaching from Chapman University. I taught kindergarten and third grade. California is where I make my home with my husband and four kids.
When I’m not writing, you can find me beating up the bag at my kickboxing gym, cheering my kids on at their numerous sporting events, or walking my dogs.
