About me

I’ve been an avid reader from an early age, and historical fiction has always been one of my favorite genres. I love reading about other times and places and the people who lived them.
I’ve always loved writing as well, and now I’m able to combine both those joys. My debut novel is a young adult historical, Yakimali’s Gift, which takes place in 1775 New Spain–Mexico (modern day Arizona) and California.
I want to share with kids and teens my love of books: the worlds they open, the things they teach, the feelings they express.
