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'm an adult now (and nothing you can say can make me change my mind about that) and hopefully my writing has progressed with my age. When I'm not spending my time with made up people in made up places doing made up things - some would call it lying- I'm generally reading, running, watching sports, drinking good beers and eating too much food with the hubby. I'd love to tell you I'm a mountain climber or an astronomer o ...more


Exciting news! I am nearly done with the first book in the Grape Merriweather series. Whoot whoot!!!

Not quite as exciting, I have to punch up the beginning and overhaul the ending. I've been getting feedback from Betas and so far, they all agree: the story is good and fast-paced, but there are a few bumps that need smoothing out. I am super happy because the finish line is in sight, but I'm wo... Read more of this blog post »

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

“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. :)
