The SparkNotes Version:


I write books for teens and kids, both contemporary stories and magical ones. I’m also a librarian, avid reader, and habitual chatterbox. I am represented by Marietta Zacker at Gallt & Zacker Literary Agency!

Since my first publication in 2007, my work has appeared in numerous poetry collections and anthologies, and two of my YA series are now available. If you love paranormal romance, Minutes Before Sunset, book 1 in the Timely Death trilogy, is for you. It has no vampires or werewolves, and it’s based on Midwest folklore! If you’re looking for a dystopian fantasy, you should check out my Bad Bloods series. It’s sort of like X-Men, but much darker. Looking for other fun facts? I am a SCBWI member in the KS/MO region. During the day, I am The Story Center Program Manager for the Mid-Continent Public Library, the largest library in the Kansas City metro, and I love my job. Come check us out. We’re an awesome home of storytelling. During the night, I write. I love both poetry and prose, and I enjoy writing across many genres. My current projects include two novels in verse and a YA romcom. When I’m not writing, I’m watching KDramas and baking cookies at midnight. I’m also a cat lady of two gremlins. Between writing and befriending cats, I graduated from the University of Kansas with a bachelor’s degree in English with an emphasis on creative writing, and I travel whenever the road calls.

You can reach me at via my Contact page. I’ll be drinking coffee when I read your message.

Talk to you soon!
