I'm a writer, Egyptologist, mom (2 kids, 1 rescue dog, and a hedgehog), friend, avid reader and dedicated coffee drinker.
I'm excited to introduce Jagger Jones and his little sister, Aria, to the world with my debut novel: Jagger Jones and the Mummy's Ankh. A little spoiler for you: ancient Egypt is nothing like Jagger expected. Sure, he knew ancient Egyptians believed in magic, but real magic? And giant crocodiles? And an evil General? It's almost enough to make even a die-hard history nerd like Jagger want to get back to Chicago.
I'll confess Jagger and Aria were influenced by my own little people, but over time they came alive in my mind. Funny how that works.
Feel free to ask me any questions. I look forward to sharing more about me and my work. Thanks for checking in. xo, me
