Using a semi-Gothic style for many of her works, she writes in a rich and evocative style that conjures up an air of mystery. This is something that her fans have warmed to over the years, with her writing career coming a long way in a relatively short amount of time.

Working as a production assistant behind the scenes of a soap-opera, as well as a screenwriter and a producer, she knows exactly what goes into making a quality story. This, along with being an actor for some time too, is what gives her her highly visual and extremely evocative style of writing as well.

Currently living in Georgia with her family after moving from New York City following her graduation, she has had a lot of experience. With a wealth of material to draw from she is never short of ideas for inspiration, something which clearly shows in her creative approach to her craft. This also goes some way towards explaining how she has come to be so respected by both her peers and contemporaries alike, as well as being a bestselling author with the general public.
