Hi! I adore watery, magically things. So my characters do too. I love being near water, any kind–I grew up in between swamps and a river and now live at the bottom of Alabama, right where the antebellum lady dips her toes into the Gulf of Mexico.

I have a six year old and an almost four year old and we love to swim and build sandcastles. And bury things because, hello, pirates. Sometimes it’s hard to find the balance between playdates and growing up and finding time to write so hopefully this blog can help us out here.

My drivers license says I’m an adult but I’m pretty sure its wrong. Though I’m almost positive I’m a mermaid.

My recent writing can be found online by clicking the badges on the right, as well as in print in Babybug Magazine & Chicken Soup for the Soul. I have a YA mystery, MG fairytale retelling/magical realism & picture books out on submission. I’m represented by Lotus Lane Literary.

Thanks so much for being here!
