Art

Welcome to the newest page of my website: THE ART GALLERY!

I am lucky to have some awesome, talented friends and readers who took the time to show me what my books and characters look like to them. As a writer, it’s fun and rewarding to see how the world you’ve imagined is seen in the eyes of others. So here is a look at some gorgeous art inspired by two of my books thus far!

NOTE: I have received permission from all of the artists to post their work on my blog. Please do not take or use any images without their permission. I do not claim ownership of any artwork below or images used to create it. If you have questions or concerns, please fill out my contact form and I will put you in touch with the artist if their information is not included below. Thanks!

ELEGY

 

ELEGY is my young adult Gothic suspense novel inspired by Phantom of the Opera. It was the book that got me my agent! My wonderful friend and critique partner, Marisa Hopkins, drew this picture of my main character, Stella, with colored pencils. The background is sheet music handwritten by Beethoven. Isn’t it beautiful?!

 

 

 

PUMPKIN PATCH PRINCESS

 

I wrote PUMPKIN PATCH PRINCESS (or PPP, as I affectionately call it) back in 2010, when I was just getting serious about writing for publication. In the summer of 2015, I made the decision to post it on Wattpad, an online community where writers share their work for free. Some truly wonderful teen readers have been kind and generous enough to make this art inspired by the book! I am absolutely in love with each and every piece!
