I hold a BA in English from Carnegie Mellon University and an MFA in Writing Popular Fiction from Seton Hill University. I taught English as a Peace Corps Volunteer in Kazakhstan, the influence of which can be seen in most of my fiction and in my tea-drinking habit. When not writing, I enjoy the outdoors, softball, and having in-depth conversations about female characters.

Find me on social media!
I Tweet mostly about television, my Instagram is filled with pictures of my dog, and come talk to me on Tumblr about diversity in fiction.


  1. Enjoyed your story in "Beautiful Lies, Painful Truths." It's the best one so far.
