I was raised in Alaska, but currently live in Utah with my husband, four sons, one daughter, and a dog. My hobbies are dancing salsa, hiking, escape rooms, and writing. I am the author of Defender of Dragons. I also co-authored two articles which were published in the book A Gathering of the Saints in Alaska. My short story “Cinder” won second place in the adult division of the DragonComet Short Story Contest in February, 2016. Some of my poetry has been published in Glennallen High Times, Paladin, and The Friend. I currently work as an Acquisitions Editor for Immortal Works Press.
