My stories are full of smart girls, geeky guys, and individuals who are finding their identity and how they fit into their world–even if it isn’t what everyone else expects them to be or do.

A note to fellow writers

I am looking for a few individuals to be beta readers and/or critique partners in Spring/Summer 2016; I am finishing the first drafts of a couple of manuscripts, so I’m not there quite yet but am open to reading your work before mine is completed. My middle grade and young adult fiction is mostly contemporary or sci-fi, with a bit of fantasy thrown in for good measure. (I can’t help it. Fantasies, like The Chronicles of Narnia, were my first love as a child.)

I have been published in a couple small publications as a teenager and young adult and have maintained blogs and done some copywriting for an ad agency since that time. I’m putting my writing career first again and would like to submit my novels and picture books to publishers for consideration. If this sounds like you, and you’re looking for similar opportunities with writers, I’d love to hear from you! Let’s spur each other on to greatness.
