About me

Ever since I was young, I have enjoyed writing. College gave me the chance to combine my interest in history with my passion for literature and I mainly write historical fiction now. To research The Serpent and the Eagle, I read centuries-old texts and traveled extensively through Spain and Mexico, even retracing Cortés’ route through central Mexico. For my writing, I have won the Grand Prize Award in the 2018 Chaucer Book Awards, the Readers’ Favorite Award, the B.R.A.G Medallion Award, and the Deixler-Swain prize for my undergraduate thesis on the Spanish-Mexica war.
