About Me

I think the first thing a person would say about me is I'm fairly random, so this "About Me" section isn't going to disappoint in that regard.

I love tea with lots of sugar, sappy romantic comedies, Grey's Anatomy, and the North and South miniseries from the BBC. I also love Maine beaches, tulips, swimming, Pride and Prejudice, rain, aquariums, mint chocolate chip cookies, skydiving, and summertime.

Not exactly in that order.

Most of all, though, I love to write. I love to write about cannibals, and demon trains, and cute boys stuck in purgatory. I love to write about love and the things that get in the way of love.

I've been writing for about eight years now, and pursuing publication for a little over four. I blog (occasionally) here, as well as with the YA Misfits. I'm a young adult Pitch Wars mentor, freelance editor at The Write Service, and a book coach with Author Accelerator.

I also host the #CpMatch critique partner matchup party on Twitter!

I am represented by Mandy Hubbard at Emerald City Literary. :-)

Happy writing!


  1. That's fantastic you completed NaNoWriMo!! I tried to do it, but with a newborn and toddler and my husband deployed, it just didn't work. At least I wrote about 25,000 words though :)

    I am thrilled to find your blog! Writing is my life, too. I love raising my daughters, but my passion is writing!

  2. I'm a big Jane Austen fan too! My favourite is PERSUASION. :) I have more than a few copies of JANE EYRE by Charlotte Brontë, and I feel compelled to buy more every time I see them. I'm a Downton Abbey and North and South fan, and I'm also a YA writer. I'm so happy I've found your blog!

  3. A demonic train? That sounds cool. I'd like to get into YA horror too, but haven't had any ideas yet.
