Raised on fanciful bedtime stories and dad jokes, it would have been impossible for me to reach adulthood without a deep appreciation of the power of a well-told tale and snort-worthy humor, both of which have helped me through a tragedy or two. (Seriously, you don’t want to sit next to me at a funeral… or maybe you do. I don’t know. It could be fun.) At any rate, I’m glad to report that after an exceptionally imaginative childhood and a slightly aimless youth, I settled down with a boy who made me laugh and we had a few kids of our own.
But you didn’t come here to read all that… You came for the books, right?
My published works include:
GRIT OF BERTH AND STONE (YA Fantasy)
HEIR OF KORADIN (YA Fantasy)
CHILD OF THRESH (YA Fantasy)
and coming in October 2021,
HEARKEN THE SONG OF KILCARRIAG (YA Fantasy)
Lest you think I’m only about fantasy, I’m currently working on a YA Contemporary series about a girl who won’t be outdone by boys and a stand-alone YA epistolary novel about a boy whose perfect life is crumbling and a girl who’s learning to be the heroine of her own story.
Oh, I also work as a developmental editor at Anaiah Press because writing my own stories wasn’t enough. When the opportunity arose, I jumped at the opportunity to help other authors make their stories shine. Basically, playing with words is my jam.
