I've been in love with writing and books since I was old enough to tie together notebook paper with string. My debut MG novel, The Great Cat Nap, earned the 2014 Tofte/Wright Children's Literature Award from the Council for Wisconsin Writers. It also earned the Moonbeam Children's Award Bronze Medal in the Pre-Teen Fiction category. The sequel and standalone, The Clawed Monet, hit the shelves in 2016. My young adult novel, Break the Spell, released in autumn 2015. An early draft of that book was a finalist in the 2013 Wisconsin Romance Writers of America Fab 5 Contest and I've had short fiction appear in Black Fox Literary.
The Scorpio Races, Harry Potter 1-7, The Book Thief, I'll Give You the Sun, The Little Prince, Fragile Beasts, The Book of Extraordinary Ideas, The Lady in the Lake, The Raven Boys 1-4, This Lullaby, My Side of the Mountain, Rilke, the list goes ON!
