I wrote my first book of poetry in fifth grade and then turned right around and sold it to my classmates. I then put myself through college with winnings from essay contests and a weekly comic strip. I went on to become a newspaper columnist, magazine editor, and YA writer for Penguin Random, as well as a college English professor, freelance illustrator, and contract graphic designer.

I have written rom coms with quirky story lines since 2013, and I like to say they're reminiscent of a rom com movie you might see with Channing Tatum/Dermot Mulroney and Sandra Bullock/Debra Messing.

In 2024, I will be releasing a comfy cozy funny fun mystery series that features my illustrations.
