About Me

 

I joined Wattpad in 2015 on the recommendation of a friend. I thought it would be a good place to get feedback, and started posting a book I was working on for my senior thesis. I was shocked how quickly my novel, The Last She, grew in popularity. Β After a few months The Last She came to dominate the SciFi Genre, most often ranked #1 in SciFi Hot. In 2016 it was one of the Top Ten Most Read Books on Wattpad, read for a combined 6,205,371 minutes, and won in both The Watty’s and The Fiction Awards. Β Since then I’ve been asked to join the Wattpad Stars and Wattpad Futures programs, as well as a group of SciFi writers know as SciKick.Β In 2017, I was contracted by General Electric to write the SciFi short story, The Silver Falcon, available to read on GE’s Wattpad Profile.

Besides writing, I’m an outdoor enthusiast and love rafting the river, biking and playing volleyball. I graduated from the University of Idaho with a degree in Wildlife Biology and from the University of Wisconsin with a degree in Creative Writing. I was born and raised in the beautiful state of Idaho, and no matter where I travel, those mountains will always be home.Β
