Welcome to my web site

Hey there!

I am a writer and a teacher who currently (and at times unwillingly) living in North Dakota. I hail from Pittsburgh (Go Penguins!) and I love writing, reading, photography, wolves, and auto racing.

I graduated in June 2016 with an MFA in Writing Popular Fiction from Seton Hill University, in Greensburg, PA. Check them out here.

My thesis novel is a young adult sports novel titled Spinout set against the world of auto racing.

I also have a completed YA manuscript, Wild Music, which is about grief and memory and learning to love again–with a heaping side of wolf conservation and biology. This novel is set in Idaho,where I lived for five years.

My current wips include another racing novel, a YA historical set against the 1889 Johnstown Flood and novel about Mexican gray wolves, lobos.

I’m currently in search of an agent or editor.

You can find me on Twitter and Facebook, too.

Check back often for updates.
