As a writer, I've dabbled in a few different genres at this point, but I enjoy modern satire, edgy psychological drama, intelligent chick-lit and character-focused pieces.

As a person, I'm an outgoing blonde that loves all the thrills and spills of life. I'm fascinated with the darker side of the human condition that often evolves while indulging the glam side of our social constructs. This kind of 'ugly pretty' often finds its way into my stories. I've walked the line between the two and after much practice, I'm now grounded enough to keep to the sunny side.

Favorite Movies
I love conceptual films and ones with complex character studies, dark undertones, and ones that blur the line between hero and villain.

Favorite Music
I have varied musical tastes. Indie, alt. rock, some grunge rock, progressive house, electronica, trance, 'Hollywood Sadcore', glam pop, instrumental/classical. Lana Del Rey has been my obsession for a few years now.

In a fast-paced city of unforgiving social predators, two masters of the game collide...

She had the most beautiful profile, almost like a deer sniffing the wind, picking up the scent of gunpowder and tobacco and wondering from what direction the bullet might come. In the beginning he likened it to a natural instinct in him that made him want...
