Hello! I am a freelance pop culture writer and the author of a dozen YA SFF books. I have been writing for over a decade and have a wide range of experience as I've been both with a small press and on my own—agented, and un-agented. I have also taught creative writing for as long as I have been writing, traveled the US (and as far as Australia) to talk about writing, and won a handful of independent book awards. My husband and I call Alabama our home where our four sons keep us on the edge of sanity.
