About this author

When asked why I write, I usually stutter out a made up answer that I can't remember three seconds later. I can't remember the very first time I decided I wanted to write, it's just something I kind of always did. I wrote really bad poems as a kid, then horrible short stories as a teenager and then passable plays in college.

I'd love to tell you I'm a mountain climber or an astronomer o...more


Hi All! Sorry I've been absent, but I have a good excuse. I have been writing like a maniac. The dedicated writing time is working like magic. Some days I'm able to pump out 3-6k words. And, big news, I am almost done with my YA novel! I am incredibly excited. This book has been far easier to write than Tough Girl, and not just because the plot is less complicated. This is my second novel and I... Read more of this blog post »

The ENDING made this play. I was blown away by Nora. I cannot imagine seeing this when it was originally produced. Even today, the message and theme are still powerful. LOVE!

Margaret Atwood
“The only way you can write the truth is to assume that what you set down will never be read. Not by any other person, and not even by yourself at some later date. Otherwise you begin excusing yourself. You must see the writing as emerging like a long scroll of ink from the index finger of your right hand; you must see your left hand erasing it.”
Margaret Atwood, The Blind Assassin

Desiderius Erasmus
“When I have a little money, I buy books; and if I have any left, I buy food and clothes.”

Suzanne Collins
“You don’t forget the face of the person who was your last hope.”

“In my house there's this light switch that doesn't do anything. Every so often I would flick it on and off just to check. Yesterday, I got a call from a woman in Madagascar. She said, 'Cut it out.'

Emily Ever I am voting. Cause I'm AMERICAN. And procrastinating. Also 'cause I'm American.

Libby Yay! Glad to hear it. I read most books from personal recommendations and have Goodreads to be an amazing place for that. Looking forward to hearing more about books you've liked and not liked!


Madeleine Thank you so much for the friend request! I am digging on your tastes mighty hard and hope that, when you finally make your way to it, "Cloud Atlas" delights you just as much as it did me.

Be well! I definitely look forward to future chats about stuff and things with ya. :)
