I was born and raised in a southwest suburb of Cleveland, Ohio, with five sisters. Even as a young child I was always conjuring up stories and filling them with colorful characters, sharing them with anyone and everyone who would listen. I wrote short stories in the 5th grade, thanks to my teacher, Mrs. Luke. Since then, I’ve progressed to planning longer and more complex stories and sharing them with much larger audiences. As a professional storyteller, I’m adept at using my imaginative thinking and creative flair to bring my stories to life in engaging and entertaining ways. I write fiction, non-fiction, and juvenile books.
