What am I working on?


Kidnapped from her desert refuge, proclaimed Heiress of and underwater kingdom, and pitted against its Mad Queen, Pearl must unravel the secrets of those closest to her when she realizes the boy she loves has orchestrated everything.

About me:

     See me?
     See me reading in my natural habitat?
     Things haven't changed all that much.

     I grew up to be a bibliophile and a botanist, an adventurer (in my head), and still a kid at heart.
