I'm a reader first, writer second. I'm not sure that this is a good thing, but it's certainly true! My favorite genres include YA, MG, literary fiction, fantasy, biographies, and sci-fi. Really though, I'll read pretty much anything except for bodice-ripping romances. Margaret Atwood, Francesca Lia Block, and Samuel Beckett have all changed my life at various points in my life.

I have a BA in English from the University of Kentucky, a MA in Literature from the University of Louisville, and a MFA in Writing from Sarah Lawrence College.

When I'm not reading or writing, I'm wrangling cats and kids, or trying to make sense of my sewing machine.

Ray Bradbury
“You must write every single day of your life... You must lurk in libraries and climb the stacks like ladders to sniff books like perfumes and wear books like hats upon your crazy heads... may you be in love every day for the next 20,000 days. And out of that love, remake a world.”
