I write YA and MG resilience literature, stories about characters overcoming adversity. I also write adventure and fantasy. I have a BA in English and a MA in creative writing. I am currently pursuing an MS degree in clinical mental health counseling.

I support @weneeddiversebooks and promote #compassion through #stories. I am an advocate for positive self-image, #eatingdisorder awareness, and #LGBTQ acceptance.
