I am a YA writer and middle school teacher. I have a B.A. in English from UCLA and a Master’s degree in Educational Administration. I was born in Cincinnati, Ohio, and currently reside in Los Angeles, California, with my dog Mr. Darcy.

When I’m not living in fictional worlds inside my head, I run all sorts of distances, torture my body at CrossFit, and DVR entirely too many television shows. I dream of one day returning to the Midwest to live on a farm. Or perhaps owning a cookie delivery service.

I am the author of CHASING EVELINE and THE BRILLIANCE OF FIREFLIES.

It also reminds me that while I may be (slightly? lol) older than today's teens, really not much has changed! Their worries and fears and interests are the same as mine were as a teen. Just exchange the fluorescent for Chucks and the mixed tape for an iPod. Being a history teacher reminds me of this, too. Despite the difference between an ancient culture and modern times, the essence of people and their ideas doesn't change much. It's just the backdrop that changes.(less)

Beating Susie Sloan (Part 1)

This week’s edition of A Creative Space features the start I wrote to my “practice novel”– the first novel I attempted writing. I realized that as much as I loved this anecdote, it wasn’t the right way to start the novel. So now it’s just a fun piece of flash fiction I keep in my files. I hope you enjoy…
