About this author

I have several short pieces published in anthologies and journals, such as Vine Leaves Literary Journal, 100 Stories for Queensland, 100 RPM, Fangtales, From Stage Door Shadows, and Halcyon Magazine. While my published works are for adults, I primarily write for children, and I'm active in the New England chapter of SCBWI (Society for Book Writers and Illustrators).

Since February 2014, I've worked as a Publishing Editor's Assistant at Vine Leaves Literary Journal.

Acerbic is what you’re offering.

No fruit-shaped confections ladled with fructose
Nor strawberries smothered in unctuous chocolate.
I scour the bland baskets with scorn

I really like the voice of the main character. The book takes place almost exclusively in her home, but somehow the pacing is good. And there were interesting comparisons to Treasure Island and the Iran hostage situation in the 1980s.

But the two mai...more
