I wrote my first novel in fifth grade. Inspired by the story of Queen Elizabeth I, who defied the odds to inherit her country's throne and reign for almost half a century, I realized that there were countless stories just like hers - stories of women who struggled to forge their own fates, and who changed history in the process. I have made it my mission to share these stories with you. Whether you follow my characters to Renaissance England or Ancient Rome, I promise to take you on this same unforgettable journey: a journey that will inspire you, and your sisters, and your daughters, to follow in their footsteps.
Currently, I live in the San Francisco Bay Area with my family. As my two young sisters grow older, I hope they will be empowered by these stories, too.
