I am an author, illustrator, and environmental educator. My favorite genre to write is fantasy-adventure, while my favorite reads are usually detailed, thought-provoking historical fiction. Digital painting is my usual art medium, but I also love keeping watercolor journals and pencil sketchbooks.
Writing and art aren't my only passions. In fact, they're not even my official expertise (at least on paper). In 2012, I earned my Master’s degree in Parks and Protected Area Management from Clemson University. During the summer, I work as an interpretive park ranger with the National Park Service (with the hat and everything).
I love to hike, camp, and backpack with my family, and while I call southern Appalachia home, I have a not-so-secret love affair with the Rocky Mountains. I live in South Carolina with my husband and two daughters.
