I’ve been writing stories since before I started kindergarten. I love words.
Right now, I’m the managing editor at speculative fiction publisher Mountain Brook Fire and a multi-published author with several publishers.
You might spot me at writer’s conferences around the country–or as the case may be right now, at virtual conferences. I hope to see you there!
Also…author, did you say? Yes, indeed. With my wonderful co-author Hope Bolinger, we wrote the YA superhero chat fiction romances Dear Hero and Dear Henchman, with Dear Hades coming in 2023. I also have an ongoing three-book contract for the YA contemporary fantasy series The Wraithwood Trilogy and an ongoing four-book contract for the adult sweet romance series, Roseville Romances.
For those of you who want to read about my (not-so-tragic) backstory, I spent two years as the publicity manager at publisher Mountain Brook Ink, and I’m a former associate literary agent with Cyle Young Literary Elite. 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 hundreds 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.
