About Me

  • I am a youth services librarian who also writes young adult fiction.
  • I have been active in SCBWI since 2007. I was recently appointed southwest area representative for SCBWI-Wisconsin, serving the Madison area.
  • I love to write realistic contemporary fiction that focuses on unusual family/friend relationships, first love, and struggles with big life questions that have no easy answers.
  • I have worked in library youth services for fifteen years. Getting paid to¬†buy books, do story time and host teen programs? Definitely a dream job.
  • Follow me on Twitter.
  • I love using Goodreads to track my reading and recommend books to patrons.
