I’ve been writing stories since before I started kindergarten. I love words.
Right now, I’m an associate literary agent with Cyle Young Literary Elite, the publicity manager at Mountain Brook Ink and Mountain Brook Fire, an editor at Sherpa Editing Services, a YA author, and a freelance writer.
You might spot me at writer’s conferences around the country–or as the case may be right now, at virtual conferences! I have around ten planned so far for 2020. I hope to see you there!
Also…YA author, did you say? Yes, indeed. With my wonderful co-author Hope Bolinger, my co-authored YA superhero chat fiction romance Dear Hero released September 28th! I also have a three-book contract for The Wraithwood Trilogy (book one releases June 15, 2021) and a contract for Dear Hero‘s sequel, Dear Henchman (April 2021).
For those of you who want to read about my (not-so-tragic) backstory, I graduated summa cum laude with a B.S. in Professional Writing from Taylor University. I was the online editor and a staff writer for The Echo News, the website and blog manager and a pub board member for Illuminate YA Publishing, an intern at Little Lamb Books and Hartline Literary Agency, and a research assistant at Zondervan Library. I won various awards and things for writing (which you can see under “awards” on the drop-down “Published” menu) and I have over 150 bylines in local and international publications.
When I’m not over-committing, I’m writing: novels, short stories, poetry, articles, book reviews, blog posts…
As you navigate around this site, you’ll find links to my blog with resources for both readers and writers, some publications, my editing services, and a way to contact me.
Hope you have fun, and I’d love to get to know you! You’ll notice I have links to Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter over on the side. I’d love to connect with you there, especially if you like writing, too.
