I love cats, imaginary adventures and cold beer. Born on the cusp of the 80’s, I’m always happy to wax nostalgic about New Wave or the Smurfs. I am an expert at the Running Man and the Cabbage Patch if you ever need some late 80’s dance lessons, and I can sing the lyrics to all of Journey’s greatest hits on command. I’m fun at parties. I bring tasty snacks and decent jokes.
My first published work was an essay I wrote in college. They printed the essay in the school paper and asked if they could include a photo. I said, "sure," assuming the photo would be small. It was an 8x10 and took up half of the page. For the next three years, I was known as, "Hey, you're that girl who wrote that essay!" Until I volunteered for a comedic hypnotist. Then I was known as, "Hey, you're that girl who pretended to be a televangelist!" Since then, I always ask how big the photo will be, and I decline all invitations to be hypnotized.
I am an active member of the SCBWI and the NESW, and my short fiction has been featured in the FINAL SUMMONS anthology and on CAST OF WONDERS, episode 365.
STEEL HAND, COLD HEART is my first published YA novel.
