I am the mother of a vegetable-adverse 14-year-old whose humor inspires my writing. I’m a volunteer in both his classroom and youth sports organizations. I have been attending writing classes and conferences in person and online. As a former newspaper and magazine writer, my publication history includes breaking news and feature stories. I participated in the Writers Games and I am a member of SCBWI. I have a bachelor’s degree in Journalism and Mass Communications, with minors in business and political science, and a master’s degree in public policy administration. I live in Phoenix, AZ with my family and our dog Benny the Jet, who is available for stepping on my keyboard during Skype session if you’d like to discuss my work.
I began writing as a child and fell in love with storytelling. Eventually, I became fascinated with journalism and pursued it professionally. I spent my early adulthood writing for newspapers and magazines.
I began writing fiction in 2015. After experimenting in multiple genres, I discovered a passion for kidlit--which is commonly fueled by reading incredible stories with my son!
I am represented by Stephanie Hansen of Metamorphosis Literary Agency. We are working on submissions for a several picture book and middle grade manuscripts.
