Hello, and welcome to my website! I started writing stories for young adults when I was eleven, and in the span of my teenage and early college years I became the author of four fantasy novels with an independent publisher. Now, as I complete my Masters in Writing for Children and Young Adults from Hamline University, I'm revising a fairy tale retelling that I hope to get in the hands of an agent so I can make writing both my passion and my career.
When I'm not writing, I'm reading books (mostly YA), binge-watching too much television, exploring my new-ish surroundings of Southern California, or working in the library where I run a weekly program for teens. I would love to say I have a cat who distracts me from writing, but I'm still working on that one (the boyfriend promises it will happen soon, so cross your fingers).
