I'm an illustrator who's failed dream to become a Magical Astronaut led me to discover my new passion: Storytelling. 
I absolutely adore to explore all the possible and interesting ways to use storytelling to captivate an audience's imagination. I find myself constantly seeking challenging opportunities to grow and improve!

Growing up in an orphanage, Leila was bullied for being different. She turned her hardship into skill by becoming an escape artist --- a valuable trait when belonging to a group of magical best friends. But when a famous psychic comes to town, Leila and her pals won't be able to escape the big mystery heading their way. Whether chasing mad monkeys or banishing ghosts from haunted hotels, these six friends will do their best to keep Mineral Wells safe --- but can they still protect themselves in the process?

When street magician Carter runs away, he never expects to find friends and magic in a sleepy New England town. But like any good trick, things change instantly as greedy B.B. Bosso and his crew of crooked carnies arrive to steal anything and everything they can get their sticky fingers on. After a fateful encounter with the local purveyor of illusion, Dante Vernon, Carter teams up with five other like-minded illusionists. Together, using both teamwork and magic, they'll set out to save the town of Mineral Wells from Bosso's villainous clutches.
