Colleen graduated from college with a degree in Professional Aviation, giving her an edge and interesting background for her Taking Flight Trilogy. She worked for a few years but decided to nanny her kids when the time was right. Her entire life, she's had a love of writing but didn't realize how strong the urge was until late 2014, when she finally decided to put her ideas down on paper and a whole new world opened up before her eyes.
She was raised in a very large family full of Italians and Irishmen. Therefore, she is very fond of food, cussing, freckles, and sunburns. Her other jobs include: taxi driver, maid, and personal chef for her family. On the off chance she isn't doing any of those things, she's hiking, writing, reading, or catching up on television.
She currently lives in Arkansas with her husband and three children.
