I am a writer and vegan chef. I love riding horses, listening to music, practicing yoga, hiking with my husband and dog, and waking up really early. I love the smell of rain. I believe in unicorns and many of my friends are faeries. I could live on avocados, pickles, and bread. I am convinced that sugar is the devil and feeds cancer. On the topic of cancer, I am terrified of my cell phone and only use speaker phone for fear of radiation and eventual tumors in my ears. I consume an extraordinary amount of tea and cashew cheese.
I’m currently pursuing my MFA in Creative Writing from University of California Riverside’s Palm Desert Low-Residency program. My dream, of course, is to become published and wildly famous. I just completed my first novel, an epic fantasy. I’m also working on an e-cookbook and a slew of personal essays. And yes, of course there are unicorns in my novel.
