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.

This was really endearing. Nailed voice. Got all the angst of the age, including crushes and navigating friendships. Gracie's relationship with her parents added depth and poignancy. Perfect upper MG, low YA.
Well, That Was Awkward by Rachel Vail
"This book really surprised me with its depth. Not only is it a fun, romantic, funny, witty, read but also really poignant when it comes to the main character's relationship with her parents. "

First I started the book, got annoyed pretty quick and then returned it.

But I liked her last book, so I decided if the MC got less spoiled and had better growth.

Goo writes sweet reads. I'll be repetitive here to say I loved the dad too.

Tight by Torrey Maldonado

Snappy and accessible with an important message about toxic friendships. And also about having control over your reactions/how you handle situations. I'll be sharing this wth my students.
