My Writing


Currently on submission

Set in idyllic southern Germany, NO DIRECTION HOME is the story of a bombing at a refugee shelter and how two girls, Zada fleeing her home in Syria and Vanessa trying to protect hers, come to be there.

Told in dual narratives, both Vanessa and Zada struggle to do the best they can in a world that is changing all around them.



Finalist in the SCBWI Undiscovered Voices 2016 anthology.

The Cathari family has the power to make Rix, a seventeen year-old former street kid, immortal. To win their blessing she’ll do just about anything they ask. But when they kidnap her supposed-to-be-dead boyfriend, she finds herself in the middle of a centuries old feud, her allegiance torn between the love of her life who abandoned her and the Cathari who can give her everything she needs.
