About Me

Hello and welcome!

Short & Sweet Bio: I write novels that delve into real-life issues without shying away from controversial topics and reflect the diversity of the world in which I live. I graduated from San Jose State University and live in Silicon Valley with my husband and four children. My first novel, Blaming the Wind, was published by Red Adept Publishing (publisher of NY Times bestsellers Thought I Knew You by Kate Moretti and When You Make It Home by Claire Ashby), in 2016. My second novel, Everything She Lost, is forthcoming, also from Red Adept Publishing.

Super-sized Bio: Ever since my story about a genie granting a girl’s three wishes won the book fair in the fourth grade, I’ve had a passion for reading and writing (as well as a loathe-loathe relationship with math).  I earned a degree in Comparative Religious Studies (where is that expensive piece of paper, anyway?) and have held jobs in education, hospitality, and legal field.

I’m the Organizer of San Jose Novel Writers, a group of eclectic writers offering fellowship, support and tips on all forms of writing.  When I’m not writing or working, I’m hanging with my husband, three wonderful sons, and a great daughter (yes, I have four kids).

Since I love stories that break your heart but leave you smiling at the end, that’s exactly what I write: made-up stories about almost-real people, in a diverse world.

Thanks for stopping by, and stay tuned.  The best is on its way.
