On a more practical "who am I?" level: I’m 22 and recently graduated from Cornerstone University with a BA in creative writing. Both my work-in-progress novels, Chaos in G Major and Definitions of Life were fueled by MFA-style workshop classes I took my sophomore and junior year.

While I prefer to write fiction, I dabble in nonfiction when the opportunity arises. I have a blog about my experience with social anxiety here. You can read more about my works here.

When I'm not writing, I can be found drawing, climbing trees, petting my cat, working on embroideries for my Etsy shop, and looking for all the little things that make life worth living.

I wrote my first story when I was six years old, complete with illustrations of a chicken and a horse named PJ, because those were the only animal-shaped stencils I had.

Since then, I've drifted from the world of unlikely animal friendships and landed in contemporary young adult novels. It's my passion to write the book I wanted to read when I was in high school.

 

Because of that, my novels focus on people, internal conflict, and mental health. I strive to create broken, relatable characters young adults can not only enjoy reading about, but learn about themselves through.
