Welcome to my website! I write chilling ghost stories, thrilling young adult adventure, and inspiring poetry. My books include The Boy in the Burgundy Hood, a ghost story, the adventure mystery series, The Secret of the Tirthas and two collections of poetry.


I’m excited to announce that my second poetry book, The Things We Thought Were Beautiful, is out now!

The Things We Thought Were Beautiful includes poems on our changing feelings and connection to nature and the world around us, the beauty and strangeness of travel, and the places we look for meaning. Poems also explore the challenges of living without love, as well as the redemption of home and family.

Here’s one of the poems, All:
