About Me


I'm a writer of books, short stories, and [award-winning] screenplays. My main focus is young adult novels, for which I am seeking representation.

I live in sprawling Southern California with my boyfriend and his two cats. Someday I will convince him to get a dog (and maybe to move somewhere with less smog and more weather). He’d like to convince me to stop piling books around the bed as if I am slowly encasing myself into a paper tomb.


When I’m not writing or reading, I’m watching all the best #drama play out on TV, baking cookies, or playing video games (anything with a good story and a sword). I also like to sleep. Oh, and I work as a content manager for a tech company.

My favorite books have a lot of anger and a lot of hope. There’s a lot to be angry and hopeful about. Also? Magic.


Feel free to contact me. I’d love to hear from you!
