When Autumn Mattison receives an invitation to attend the high school, she yearns to escape her overbearing father yet remains reluctant to leave her mother and brother. Her doubts fade away when a vivid dream convinces her she belongs there.
Away from home, Autumn discovers a unique school environment that awakens her creative potential, and her new friends become like a second family. However, as she uncovers more about the dark side of the school and struggles with its curriculum, she questions whether Dickensen Academy is truly where she belongs.
When tragedy strikes, Autumn must learn to believe in her own power and stand up to her greatest fear or risk having her memories destroyed to protect the school’s secrets. Caught between secrets and dreams, can she find her true self?

Dickensen Academy is my debut YA novel. After graduating from the University of Washington, I earned my MBA at the University at Albany. I honed my technical writing skills in marketing and consulting but attribute the creative part of the process to my passion for reading.
When I’m not reading or writing, I can often be found running, skiing, or hiking. I live in Newcastle, Washington, with my supportive husband, two avid teen readers, and our energetic wheaten terriers.
