     Ava is an insomniac who writes to calm the voices. When the voices get too loud, stories emerge. 

     Ava was born and raised in Texas. Spending most of her years far from the city, she learned at an early age to create new worlds and characters as a form of entertainment. It was her cure for loneliness as an only child and led to her career as a writer today.

     Now living in Florida, Ava enjoys the fresh sea air and afternoon rainstorms. She believes there is nothing more beautiful than an evening summer light show and finds solace in writing while the thunder roars outside. 

     Married to the love of her life, Ava shares two beautiful daughters and a multitude of sweet fur babies with her husband, Mike. Their marriage is the perfect “North-meets-South” pairing, as Mike spent his youth in frigid upstate New York. 

     When she’s not writing, you can find Ava working alongside her husband, chasing her children all over the county, snapping photos of any and everything, or just spending quality time with her family.

I absolutely love succulents. They're about the only plant I can keep alive.

I love the beach, the sounds, the feel of the sand between your toes, the water trickling over your feet.

I own an insane amount of books, but don't have enough shelves to store them all. 

I love Mexican and Cajun food.

Current guilty pleasure: Double Stuffed Nutter Butters. (I love peanut butter.)
