I graduated from BYU with a double degree in Latin and History teaching. I taught high school Latin for two years in Houston, Texas. I decided to stay home after I had my first daughter. I helped my husband launch seven indie titles. The most popular of which was Wolfhound. We had a son with Cystic Fibrosis. We put writing on the backburner while we adjusted to that and my husband, Kindal,  finished up a master’s degree and worked full-time.


I’m a three-time finalist in the Mormon lit blitz. I maintained a book review blog, Gamila’s Review, for five years. I launched the LDS Picture Book Project, where I spotlighted and sometimes interviewed LDS authors of picture books. I wrote web content for Odesk, Fiverr, and Voxxy marketing.
