Get To Know Me In A Flash:
I was born in Wisconsin on October 2nd, 1992. I have an older sister named Cara, a younger sister named Kendra, and a supremely spoiled cat named Nina. Cara's an actress, Kendra's a freaky super-genius like Reid from Criminal Minds, and Nina is my muse.
|Nina, my muse.|
My parents are both lawyers but they're not what you'd imagine when you hear the word "lawyer". My mom is wonderfully crazy, and for those of you who are familiar with the show Gilmore Girls, she's like Rory's mom Lorelei only way better. She's my best friend and my best critic, always willing to hug me or give me a kick in the pants. My dad sings and plays guitar. I always assumed he was an average guitar player because he taught himself and I grew up watching him make it all look easy, then one day I realized most professional guitarists don't play as well as he does. He's a finger-picking maniac.

I've been writing forever. According to my mother I dictated my first book to her when I was two, and it was about a bunny. She tells everyone this, even though I don't remember it at all. It's because of my mom that I'm published -- if you're confused about how many editions of Legacy are available, here's the explanation!
When I was fifteen, my mom started her own publishing company to put Legacy out, in the hopes of attracting a larger company. We released it on April 15, 2008, in paperback with this cover:
My mom's plan worked -- in March of 2009 I was connected with the Amazon.com team launching AmazonEncore, the company's publishing arm. On August 18, 2009, Legacy was released in hardcover by AE, with this artwork:
I had a great time with AmazonEncore and got to meet some amazing people, but ultimately we parted ways. On June 28th, 2011, HarlequinTEEN released a newly edited paperback edition of Legacy:
Legacy's sequels, Allegiance and Sacrifice, will be coming out through HQTEEN respectively on February 28, 2012, and in November 2012. Legacy has additionally been sold in sixteen foreign countries.
