 MY STORY

I believe in channelling my creative gifts to produce unique content in multiple platforms; from the stages of theatre, to film, television, the web, and podcasting. My goals are simple; I want to inspire, validate, and give voice to women for equal representation across the media spectrum. The inspiration for my work is the desire to showcase the dynamic brilliance of women in all their diversity regardless of age, gender preference and orientation, or ethnicity. What I create is born out of a combination of my education, training, and personal experience which allows my perspective as an artist to create content that is impactful and powerful.

 

THE HAPPY PILL PODCAST

I created The Happy Pill Podcast to openly discuss experiencing the effects of abuse and depression and how to heal them while finding life to be the Happy Pill. I will share my personal story and healing journey because I want to change the negative stigma surrounding depression. I want to offer my listeners hope, inspiration, and validation that they are not alone in their journey and that there are resources available. In each episode, I'm going to share valuable tools and techniques from my personal life and those of my interviewed guests. If you're ready to take hold of your life, find purpose and joy, or want to hear some great advice, then this podcast is for you!

Children of the Sky - Book I

Young Adult Fiction Series - Second Draft

A prophecy foretold of a single gifted child that would bring balance back to the earth and free the children of the sky. Children so gifted that the government would do anything to claim these powers for their own, and the one they desire most is nineteen-year-old Ellie Clayton.

 

Ellie is unaware that she is gifted and her father Race, made sure of it. Forcing a partition in her mind when she was a little girl never allowed Ellie to tap into her powers, but it came at a price, and now Ellie is dying, and the only thing that can save her is a mysterious stone known as The Emerald Tablet. An item the government wants most desperately and Ellie has the sole ability to retrieve it. A combination of Ellie and the Tablet will equate to unlimited power, and when the government finally discovers her location, they force Ellie to hunt for the Tablet by kidnapping her older brother Cayce and forcing her hand.

 

In a race for time to save her life and her brother, Ellie must retrieve the Tablet before the government does, but to that, she must align with the man she hates the most, her father. Race enlists a small garrison of former military personnel including Garrett Wong, a military communications officer and the father of her best friend, Manchester Wong.  However, there is one ally that disturbs Ellie the most, the mysterious, Renae. This small company will traverse the dangerous mountain range of the French Alps in hopes of retrieving The Emerald Tablet in time.
