I was born in Nebraska, but grew up all over the country. My greatest super power, is my imagination. In my 20's I lived in Hollywood at the Fleur Dis Lis off of Hollywood Blvd. I spent my days off watching back to back movies for hours in the theaters. I love to write original characters that are quirky, out of the norm, and celebrate diversity.

I attended College in London England and Los Angeles. I graduated with a BA in Fashion Design & Merchandising. I have had over 200 jobs before I got into my career as a photo stylist for magazines and catalogs, working in the industry for 23 years in Los Angeles.

I grew up all over the country. Living in Nebraska, Iowa, Connecticut, Indiana, London England, Boston, Minneapolis, Los Angeles, Washington, Portland, Oregon, Manteca, CA., and now back to Gresham, Oregon .

Moving has allowed me to get to know many different types of people and create unique, diverse characters with heart. I am currently working full time as a screenwriter. I work towards my dream every day. I like writing romantic comedy, dark comedy, and drama thrillers & horror.

I have been married to Greg Dang for 23 years, together for 26. We have one son Kien who is living in LA. We have a 130 pound blind Akita, named Kenai.
