About

Welcome! I am looking forward to engaging with you about all things writing! I am happy to answer your questions about structure, style, format and more. Have a question? Let me know.

By day, I am a librarian and creative writing teacher. I graduated Magna Cum Laude from Marywood University with a degree in English/Secondary Education and from Mansfield University with a Masters degree in Library Science and Information Technologies. I have lectured at Keystone College, The Cooperage, the Gathering at Keystone, and at the Tome Literary Society TomeCon Conference in 2018 & 2019.

My debut novel, Misled, will be published by Champagne Book Group in 2021, and my second book, Buried Beneath, will be released in early 2022. In my academic writing, I have been published in School Library Monthly and I have presented my work at the National Council of Teachers of English and PCTELA conferences. I was also the recipient of the Charitas Medal for Poetry at Marywood, and I am a member of SCBWI.

I offer editing and critiquing services for beginning writers from development to final polish. I am a 2016 & 2017 YA PitchWars mentor, and the founder of the teen writing pitch contest #TeenPit.
