Author's Note: Hello friends! A few of my favorite things include a good cup of coffee, dark chocolate, traveling anywhere, and a warm sunny beach. I'm originally from Austin, Texas, and a trace of a drawl still survives to this day, although I have lived in Southern California with my family for years. I am passionate about ideas, writing, and entrepreneurship, which is why my characters always seem to be starting or running their own business. History fascinates me, as does the perfect cheesecake. I love to hear from readers, and welcome your comments.
