YA reader, writer, wife, and new mom. Lover of Scotland, swords, and adventures. I write books and send queries while my one-year-old is napping. My Swoon Reads manuscript, Daughter of Avalon, has been a labor of love 17 years in the making. 15 years to build a solid first draft. 2 more years of revising and editing with the help of the Midwest Writers Workshop, one amazing editor, and my local creative writers group. Looking forward to more writing adventures! Happy reading and writing!
All-time YA favorite: The Seer and the Sword by Victoria Hanley. Other favorite stories: Lord of the Rings, A Wrinkle in Time series, the Ranger's Apprentice series, George MacDonald's fairy tales. My newest YA reads: Into the Dim, The Hearts We Sold, Throne of Glass, and Swoon Reads' Finding You.
