Walnut (but not THAT Walnut).
Studio Smexy.
RuPaul’s Drag Race.

Born and raised in beautiful Colorado and never wanting to leave—very nearly with a camera in hand—I am currently on an extended vacation to Los Angeles. I started my own family, went to college, started a business objectifying all the beautiful people, trying to get used to humidity wrecking havoc with my hair, texting with only RuPaul’s Drag Race gifs, and totally beating the daylights out of a ninja, all with a camera in hand.

Spending my days in parenting chat rooms I got highly adept with one-handed typing and I can still type just about as fast with one hand as I can with two. It’s a great talent to have when engrossed in a scene and in need of a hit of caffeine.

I live and thrive off chaos and the constant flow of the creative process. I would wear shorts and flip-flops year-round in Colorado—much to the chagrin of my friends and family.

Once I finished my first novel I quickly remembered: I was born a photographer.

From the realization that someone ELSE would be shooting the cover of MY book my control-freak took over. What started as an easy cover shoot ballooned into this ground-breaking new kind of media, designed specifically for digital book readers. The Illustrated Romance.

The images from my book started a ruckus, and from there, #StudioSmexy was born, I’ve since shot over 1,000 romance novel covers, and currently shoot custom images for very special clients.

My second novel ABSOLUTE SURRENDER did its own ninja impersonation with the charts on Amazon, and the third book is fixing to attack any minute now.

You can find me on Twitter, Facebook and Instagram sharing eye candy (NSFW) and being a total rock star.
