​I'm an author and professional public school educator.  I'm the creator and writer of two supernatural thrillers for young adults: The Life and Undeath of Mortimer Drake vampire novels and The Neither Nor Series starring my young hero, Edgar Flax. I developed a love of stories and adventure at an early age and I've always loved to read and write. Storytelling is just what I do. I graduated from college with a degree in foreign language education and began a career in teaching world languages. I spent 15 years as a classroom teacher of Spanish until moving into school administration. I am currently an elementary school principal. It's a job I absolutely love. Kids and teachers are my favorite people! I live and work in my lovely Chattanooga where I'm the proud pet parent of three wonderfully spoiled felines: Mona, Mina, and the Lady Missy Grey.
