My Writing

Although I’ve dabbled in many genres, I keep coming back to science fiction and fantasy. Right now, one of my main projects is Cinders and Steel, a steampunk novel that’s very loosely based on the fairy tale “Cinderella.” I also have some short stories simmering on the back burner, including a few that I’m hoping to finish very soon.

Cinders and Steel mini cover

Cinders and Steel

A steampunk adventure inspired by Cinderella.

When Elle’s father and stepmother die suddenly, she finds work cleaning chimneys in a coal-powered factory and comes home every day with a soot-smeared face.

She dreams of escaping the city one day, but for now, she has other concerns—keeping her difficult younger stepsisters out of trouble at the summer festival, surviving in a factory dripping with poisonous fumes, and helping a new friend whose secret may tear the entire city apart.

Genre: Steampunk novel

Status: Currently outlining, researching, and beginning to write Draft 1

Stardust Wake mini cover

Stardust Wake

A senator’s daughter. A hacker. Galaxies spiraling into war.

To Viya, tracking down the giant monsters that still terrorize parts of the galaxy is preferable to politics and royal duties. But when an attempt on her life strands her on an alien ship, her survival and the future of her planet will depend on an alien captain, a hacker, and a few other unexpected allies.

Genre: Science fiction

A young boy joins a group of secretive diplomats with legendary powers. Their goal: to protect their kingdom from invasion by the rightful heir to the throne… and to keep magic from falling into the wrong hands.
