Welcome. Thank you for stopping by! I’m the author of six novels (four young adult and two coming-of-age). My latest are Pride Must Be A Place, Half Dead & Fully Broken and Burn Baby Burn Baby.

Half Dead was one of 5 of my novels that won the Muskoka Novel Marathon’s BEST NOVEL AWARD. Burn Baby made the American Library Services for Youth in Custody‘s 2016 In-the-Margins Book Awards List. I am also a playwright. Thus far, I have had ten short plays and two one-act plays produced.


I mostly write books for and about teens. I used to be one.



BURN BABY BURN BABY (From the Library Services for Youth in Custody website): Francis Fripp endured years of abuse from his dad, culminating in a horrific burning incident when he was in elementary school. Now at 17, he continues to suffer from the tormenting and bullying of his peers because of his physical scars. Francis’ emotional scars and lack of self-esteem cause him even greater self-harm; he does not think he is worthy of romantic attention from the new girl in school, Rachel Higgins. He also believes that the long friendship and unconditional support of Trig are undeserved.


When I’m not writing, I’m passionate about exploring the world. After walking the Camino de Santiago in May of 2014, there’s been no turning back. I’m currently writing fiction that takes place in some of the beautiful locales I’ve been fortunate enough to explore. NEXT ADVENTURE will be India and Nepal in September, 2018!
