Hello readers, dreamers, and friends! I am a New Jersey native; born in Bayonne but raised on the Jersey Shore. I graduated magna cum laude from Montclair State University in 2010 and currently, I teach English at the same high school I graduated from, which is both weird and wonderful. HER BEAUTIFUL MONSTER is my first novel, but a second novel is currently in the works!
