Hi! I'm so glad you stopped by.

Me, in a nutshell: married for 16 years, mama of 3.  
Faves: ice cream, coffee, sourdough, baseball, and Jesus.

Current & recent writing projects:

  • 2019: I’m beginning to query a contemporary rom com: a YA retelling of a beloved 90s movie, with a summery setting at a lake. I’m also entering Pitch Wars 2019 with this manuscript.

  • 2018: I wrote a YA manuscript that touches on time travel, immigration, and music (along with falling in love, of course).

  • 2017: I wrote a middle-grade manuscript (contemporary with magical elements) set at summer camp; this was a gift for my daughter. My son has now also read it along with a friend who read it to his kids. This warms my heart!

Fangirl of:

  • the Dodgers

  • Katniss Everdeen
