I write sex-positive, contemporary romance. My debut novel, Up for Air, won "Sexiest Consent" in the 2021 Good Sex Awards, as well as the 2021 Readers' Favorite Gold Medal Winner in Romance - Sizzle, and the 2021 Independent Press Award in Romance.

My follow up novel, The Road Home, won the 2022 Readers' Favorite Gold Medal in Romance - Sizzle and was a 2022 Next Generation Indie Book Awards Finalist for Multicultural Fiction.

A citizen of the Cherokee Nation, I'm originally from Oklahoma, and currently resides in Austin, Texas. When not writing, I'm usually helping my husband with our never-ending home remodeling adventure or marathon watching British crime dramas.
