I’ve been writing fiction since 2008, in addition to a short stint with novellas in junior high. Due to the timing, I cut my writer teeth¬†on paranormal, but have also played around with middle grade and women’s fiction before settling in my sweet spot of contemporary young adult (most often with a twist of structure or a play on reality).

Since 2011, I’ve been a member of SCBWI and have soaked up as many conferences and freelance¬†editors as I’ve been able, in order to further my writing without an official degree. In 2014, I interned with Entangled, and reading so many submissions also taught me a lot about story and structure and plot.

My favorite books are generally YA contemporary and fantasy, but I can – and will – get sucked into any great story, big or small.
