I write about reckless girls in broken worlds with gifts that will be the death of them.

During the day, I work in digital publishing for an academic press. By night, I write, read, and review. I also have a degree in psychology, an orange sash in Kung Fu, and am learning Spanish and Mandarin in my spare time.

In my other spare time, I freelance edit young/new adult fiction for the loveliest of authors. My latest client has just been offered contracts by two publishers! I can't wait to share their success in more detail.
