Before I was a writer, I was a weirdo who kept her diary on the internet. From 1997 to 2002, I authored Dreams For An Insomniac, an online collection of my daily (sometimes weekly) thoughts and hopes.

In 2003, I earned my MFA in Creative Writing — Fiction from Texas State University. I have taken writing workshops and studied with Pam Houston, Tim O’Brien, Nova Ren Suma, Debra Monroe, Francisco X. Stork, and many others.

I am represented by Mackenzie Brady Watson of Stuart Krichevsky Literary Agency.
