Bio

I’ve been writing since I was old enough to imitate everything I love. The skirmishes of Beatrix Potter’s woodland creatures, the antics of Bugs Bunny and Porky Pig, the spooky adventures of Scooby and the gang, the missteps and angst of Judy Blume’s adolescent girls—I had my version of them all. My most cherished labor of love was my homage to all of the girl-powered mystery series. Then I discovered that I hate plotting mysteries. I really just wanted to write about the girls and their friendships and their clashes with their families and their troubles in school and their dreams for the future and their first loves. Pretty much what I write about now. In my first completed novel, A Long Dry Spell, a college dropout contends with her overbearing dad, her new summer fling, and her forsaken ambition.

Besides writing, I love reading (of course!), going to movies, marathoning TV shows, and dancing.

I grew up in Washington State, where it rains a lot. I now live in New Mexico, where it rains really hard for five minutes and then the sun comes back out.
