So Much Conventioning! (and the time the blog went down…oops!)
HELLO AGAIN! Sorry I have been the bog failer-to-blog, but we recently experienced a teeny tiny hiccup over here. The blog disappeared. It vanished.

I have been oddly fortunate in my writing career so far. Oddly. Fortunate. I sold the very first piece of short fiction I ever submitted. And the next two. I got the first staff writing job I ever applied for. My first book was published by a small press, but it was accepted on a […]

I first heard about the Note To Self project on Twitter. It’s a series of interviews with happy, successful adult women geared toward inspiring teen girls. The women are interviewed about what their lives and world were like when they were fifteen, lessons learned from that time in their lives, and the joys of their […]
In the lead-up to the release of Rites & Desires, I was honored and privileged to speak with Daphne James Huff and the Writer Mom Life podcast. I had a wonderful time chatting with her about my book, my goals, and what it’s like to be an author in a small press. Check it out!
