Hi! Aside from checking to see how old inkpop friends are doing, I'm rarely on here. If anyone wants to get in touch and catch up, check out the links at the bottom.
A little more about me:
I'm an Associate Editor for Entranced Publishing. I line edit novels and assess manuscript submissions.
I recently graduated with an English degree.
I write primarily MG and YA. Those who knew me on inkpop might remember UNDER THE TREES and SEER. After jumping from one WIP to another way too many times, I'm currently trying to decide what I want to work on next.
I work part time at a pizza restaurant and really enjoy it.
Writing query letters is the bane of my existence, but I love critiquing them.
I have the best critique partners in the world and wouldn't be where I am today without them.
I have to snack while I write or edit. Beef jerky and gobstoppers are my go-to snacks of choice. I also have to have something to drink, usually sweet tea or water.
I'm married to my high school sweetheart. We have the cutest little girl in the world. Seriously, she's adorable.
My heart is forever divided between fairy tales retellings and Regency era novels. Not surprisingly, my favorite book is PRIDE AND PREJUDICE, and my favorite TV show is Once Upon a Time. NOTE: If you have a retelling or a Regency-inspired novel, message me with the pitch. I just might check it out and give you a free read.
Not open to critiquing at the moment, unless your work falls under the exceptions I already mentioned. But I love hearing what old inkies are working on. Stay in touch and keep me updated :-)
