I'm a mother, writer, and lover of books. I believe in the power of literature and its ability to change a reader for the better and therefore the world for the better. My most favorite books include Lemony Snicket's A Series of Unfortunate Events, D. M. Cornish's Foundling Trilogy, and J. K. Rowling's Harry Potter. I read grownup books sometimes, too.

A few words about me

 "Heir to the Lamp is Anne Rice meets Harry Potter: delicious writing, mysterious Southern Gothic, and an inventive, magical world for tweens, teens, and the young at heart."

" A few days ago, I thought I knew all there was to know about how I came to be here...in this place...in this family...but now there's the lamp and the Grimms, and I don't know anything for sure anymore."
