A broken heart, fused back together in scorn, cannot be broken again

Though Liddy has embraced her Watcher heritage as a protector of the realms, insecurities return as she doubts her ability to be the savior the Kingdom of Cristes needs her to be.

Liddy and Will have no idea how to hone nor control their giftings. As if being a teenager in Mortalia weren’t difficult enough, being together can literally make the couple shine brighter than the Northern Lights. They need guidance and lots of it, but their mentor Nick has disappeared, and the only friend who knows what they are is human. 

With unexpected help, Will and Liddy must travel through other's memories to learn about Mara, the witch in the envelope, in hopes of defeating her. Unearthed is an icy betrayal, one so deep it fractures Mara’s soul and the flames of her fiery rage could burn through their worlds. Everyone is on borrowed time as Mara seeks to exact her revenge. Will and Liddy must find a way to stop her or die along with everyone they have ever loved.  



I grew up in Wheeling, IL. but now reside in sunny Florida. The change in the weather took some getting used to, but my town has become my little paradise. My love of storytelling began at an early age when I would walk my little brother to the library. Getting immersed in a good book that can inspire, offer hope, help the reader get lost in a new world, and expand the imagination is what I cherish most in stories.I hope my novels can offer you the happy escape and adventure you desire. 

I graduated from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign with degrees in history and secondary education. I’ve always loved learning about people and the process around the choices they make.  

A former high school teacher and echocardiographer, I have always been driven, but one of my many passions is the arts, especially singing and dancing. 

In December 2017, I was struck with an invisible illness. MDDS and chronic vestibular migraines have left me disabled. At times I’ve wanted to give up. However, my faith, coupled with the extraordinary people God has placed in my life, has given me the strength to keep going—to be a lamp for others who may find themselves alone in the dark.

I am happily married to my college sweetheart and enjoy staying at home with my two daughters while pursuing my passions and investing quality time in my family and friends.
