Romance is my way of creating a world that reflects the people and various relationship dynamics that exist around me. I hope that my writing offers a space where love of all shades and expressions are seen as valid, real and embraced. Each love story I write carries a piece of me in it’s pages and I’m proud to share a part of my heart with each and every page you turn.
When I’m not writing romance, I’m probably working my day job as a pretty damn good barista, or obsessing over my ever-growing plant collection. I have a geriatric dog that I coddle and enable to live her best forever puppy life. I currently live in Colorado where every day proves to be a new adventure.

praise for our authors
Reviewer Choice Awards 2019
“One of the things I most loved about this book, was the setting. The town that Julie moves to is full of people who are open-hearted; the wedding between all three of them is one that the entire town are invited to and the cheer and celebrations are both real and amusing. I think it’s incredibly telling, particularly when considering some of the debate surrounding “realism” and historical romance, that this is one of the most realistic historical romances that I’ve read in a long time. It doesn’t ignore race or prejudice, but it models an HEA that made me cry.
We need more romances like this, and I cannot wait for Julie’s brother’s book—which I hope will be very soon!”-Pink Heart Society
“I’m here for queer joy in books these days, for outsized HEAs, for muscled imagination, for all that WORK of hope; and most of the time I’m seeing WOC authors, especially Black women authors, doing that work and giving that gift. It’s balm and fuel and a blessing for all of us readers, and I am so grateful.”-Claire
