Besides being an award-winning historical fiction novelist, I’m also a hopeless bookworm who regularly blogs about Medieval Europe. I graduated with honors from Winthrop University in 2007 where I studied medieval art history, children’s literature, and education. After a short stint in teaching, I wrote and published my first novel, The Fairytale Keeper, which was a quarter-finalist in Amazon’s Breakthrough Novel Contest. Though I no longer teach, I enjoy inspiring teens to read, write, and explore history through my author events. This spring, I was a speaker at the Girl Scouts Powerful Women’s Summit in my home city of Greenville, South Carolina.
While some may call my obsession with Grimm’s fairytales and the dark underbelly of Medieval Europe unhealthy, I call it inspiration.So if you’re into what I’m into, follow me into my dark, sometimes snarky writerly world. And if you’re so inclined, subscribe to my monthly newsletter where I offer sneak peeks into the series, a short listing of the month’s most popular blog posts on fairytales, medieval history, and so much more.
