I’ve been writing in some form or fashion since I was five years-old. My first YA novel, One Night, was released in September 2016. When I’m not working or writing I like to travel. I’m Filipino, Italian, and Scottish and I’m married to a Serbian which gives me a unique worldview! My favorite authors are John Green, Tommy Wallach, David Baldacci, Lisa Scottoline, Phyllis Reynolds Naylor, Jesse Andrews, and Taylor Jenkins Reid. Also, I love a good musical, the kind that makes you weep and fills your heart with joy and hope for humanity.

One Night (Thompson Lake #1)
As luck would have it, Johnny needs a temporary assistant to help with equipment and social media and Thompson eagerly accepts the offer, hoping it will distract him from his painful and lingering romantic issues. But like Thompson, Johnny is nursing a secret heartbreak and pining for his own lost love. So the new roadie starts making plans—with a little help from his friends Ronnie and Greta—to accompany the counterfeit King on an odyssey of a lifetime that will take them far from their island paradise home in search of true love.
One Love (Thompson Lake #2)
He’s going to college in Hawaii, but Greta’s in Italy.
When he meets Charlotte things get complicated.
Is it Greta he wants to be with?
Will he discover that, despite what he believes, a person can have more than One Love?
One Love, the companion novel to One Night (2016), is a contemporary novel about college, first love, and friendship. Though it is technically a sequel to One Night it can be read as a standalone novel.
