Author. Dreamer. Believer.




Dear 2020, 


You turned out to be way different than I expected. In spite of all the crazy, I finished my second novel. You couldn't stop me. I was determined to make the best of this time. I kept writing even when there were many days that I didn't want to. 


Now, Slingshot officially in the final stages of editing. It wouldn't have gotten there unless you didn't give me the opportunity to stay home way more than usual and provide space to let my imagination run wild because I didn't get to go on a proper vacation.

You gave me space to grow, change and develop as a storyteller. Enabling me to exercise that creative muscle regardless of the pain, uncertainty or challenge. 

I can honestly say I am grateful for this experience even though I wouldn't wish it on anyone.

In college, a literary agent pursued the author for a collection of essays.  Adulthood brought the opportunity to write stories for a next generation interactive publisher as well as an option on a screenplay by a Hollywood producer.
