About Kayla

"A non-writing writer is a monster courting insanity." -Franz Kafka

I am a writer. There was a recent chunk of years during which I did not write--at least, not creatively. Did I transform into a monster? Did I spiral into the depths of insanity? Well, not exactly. But things were certainly darker during those years, and I can now see the ways in which I had been flirting with some of my deepest neuroses. Now, thanks to my first novel, The Apple Tree, I am a healthy writer again--which is to say, I am a writing writer again. Now, I am happy to report, I feel much more like myself.

A Few Facts


At 26 years old, I'm a brand new author. I live in Washington state with my husband and fluffy Norwegian Forest cat. I am a logophile, a pluviophile, and I think llamas are pretty great, too.

The Apple Tree


My debut romance novel is available to read on Amazon. I'm excited to share The Apple Tree with anyone and everyone. I'm currently at work on my second novel, so stay tuned!
