Teacher by day. Writer by night. Wife. Knitter. Photographer. Hobby linguist. I write sci-fi, fantasy, and magical realism. I love reading and writing anything that takes me to another place: whether that's another world or a secret pocket of our own. If I am not teaching, reading, or writing, you can probably find me cleaning while listening to a true crime podcast.
Inkheart Trilogy (by Cornelia Funke), The Lord of the Rings, Pride and Prejudice, Bone Gap (by Laura Ruby), the Lady Helen series (by Alison Goodman), A Darker Shade of Magic (by V.E. Schwab), and Beloved
"Language alone protects us from the scariness of things with no names. Language is meditation." –Toni Morrison
