Long Bio:

I have been writing since I was a young girl. My very first story was called The Dreams of Isabella, and it was about a young girl who visits magical places in her dreams. I continued writing stories about magical worlds throughout childhood, though I was much better at starting new books then finishing them!

Many unfinished (but much loved) childhood stories!

Nutcracker time

Although I dreamed of becoming an author, that felt like a fantasy from one of my stories. Nonetheless, I kept writing through junior high, high school, and college. I was also obsessed with ballet, making scrapbooks, and playing with my cats! I took a break from writing to pursue my PhD in social psychology, but as soon as I had a minute of free time my mind immediately returned to my stories.

You can call me Dr. Boyce now ;)

In 2008 I began to write seriously with the hopes of being published. Since then I’ve become a board member of SCBWI and attended writing conferences and workshops around the country. I’m always on the lookout for an adorable unicorn, fairy, or narwhal and I’ll always be a teen girl at heart!
