I write novels for children and teens, and help create animated work for the screen.

In 2016 I co-wrote the Quartz Creek Ranch series, which follows the adventures of four troubled kids finding answers with the help of horses, with Amber J. Keyser.


In 2017, my contemporary thriller Honor Code published with Lerner BooksHonor Code has received positive critical reviews from Kirkus, Booklist, and School Library Journal.


Castle of Lies (Lerner Books) was published in 2018. It is a romantic fantasy romp full of scheming teens and dangerous magic.

As of 2018, I am one of a team of writers who developed Volume 7 of Rooster Teeth's animated sci-fi/fantasy show, RWBY. I will be continuing work on RWBY for Volume 8.
