I'm a Bay Area-based independent author (as in, not in bookstores with a publisher). I have wanted to be a novelist since I was around 10 years old and discovered I had a love of expressing myself through writing and the power of stories to impact people's lives. I started dabbling in long-form writing in high school and by the time I finished college, I had my first true novel written. It was only recently, however, that I had the courage to really put it out there for the first time. I still can't quite wrap my head around the idea that I have fans, but if you are one, please know that I appreciate your support and favorable reviews of my work in a way I can't truly express with mere words.
In my day-to-day life, I work for the state of California as a climate change policy analyst and advocate. I believe in public service and using my skills to make the world better for everyone. Along those lines, I have a Master's degree in Public Policy from the UCLA Luskin School of Public Affairs.
My first novel, World Incorporated, was political and science fiction, but I have ideas for imaginative stories in all kinds of genres. I hope to start working on many of these ideas in earnest to get more novels out to you soon.
Thanks for stopping by,
