Turtles find me.


During sea turtle season, I cruise Ponce Inlet beach with Florida’s Volusia Turtle Patrol.

I'm also currently a writer for Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University in Daytona Beach.

My second novel, SNAKES OF ST. AUGUSTINE was released by Regal House Publishing in September 2023. Read reviews online HERE.

In summer 2026, Regal House will release my novel, THE TRAIN TO SANTA FE.


My debut novel, CITY IN A FOREST, was published in September 2019. It received a gold award in the Florida Writers Association's 2020 Royal Palm Literary Awards competition.

A fourth novel, TURTLE WITCH, inspired by great women of conservation science, is underway.

I earned my M.F.A. degree from Queens University of Charlotte and my B.A. in English from Eckerd College.

My short stories and essays have been published by Pangyrus, Atticus Review, The Northern Virginia Review, Eckerd Review, Blackheart Magazine, Crab Fat Magazine, Gravel Magazine, and Dying Dahlia Review, and in the book Boomtown. Long ago and far away, I was a journalist.

Through the simple act of reading, you make the world a better place. Thank you.
