Member Since
December 2017

I'm a New England native who drifted to China and then California before realizing that I belonged on the East Coast. Ten years into my teaching career, I've finally accepted that I'm never going to work for NASA, so I've taken to writing science fiction instead. In addition to our jobs, my husband and I juggle a rambunctious Samoyed, a preschooler, and a toddler. My favorite thing in the world is hearing my children laugh. My second favorite thing is hearing from readers!
