Our Next Dance

Born and raised in Plymouth, Minnesota, Becca Cooper is a skilled ballet dancer who struggles with a secret that could shatter her life. Plagued by debilitating visions of a ballerina named Cassandra, the seventeen-year-old begins to discover her truth in the pages of a dusty old diary. When Becca realizes there is more to her crush, Caleb, than meets the eye, they team up to turn back the hands of time and seek justice for an incomprehensible crime. This enchanting story alludes to the supernatural but hits the ground running with so much suspense and emotion that the dusting of paranormal activity is only a delicious bonus!

Hello and welcome!

Thank you so much for taking the time to visit my website. There is a ton of other stuff you could be doing right now so the fact that you are here is awesome.

I live in Reno, Nevada and work as a Registered Nurse at Renown Hospital. I love my job, love my coworkers, and am proud to work for one of the most caring hospital systems in the country. My husband and I have three sweetheart daughters and three funny cats. Through the years, we have moved to several different states. Because I left a little piece of my heart in Plymouth, Minnesota and in Sarasota, Florida, I guess Our Next Dance helped fill the void.

I have always been interested in writing and even had my own little library of sorts in grade school. Basically, I wrote short stories, constructed the books with a cardboard backing, and checked them out to my classmates; a class favorite was “The Haunted Playground.”

I love writing fiction weaved with real life events so when I decided to write a Young Adult, Crossover novel, it made sense to take the strangest experience of my entire life and blow it up into one big crazy story. My boyfriend (now husband) and I were attending a production of the San Francisco Nutcracker Ballet when I unexpectedly experienced a flashback that, to this day, still haunts me.

From the bottom of my heart, I appreciate your interest and your support. Rather you read “Our Next Dance” or just want to say hello, I would love to hear from you!
