About

Writing is one of the hardest things I've ever done -- well, that and motherhood-- yet I can't stop diving into it (and motherhood is sort of a forever type of thing, so I dove into that pool for a long swim).

I live in sunny Northern California. And along with doodling down ideas and dialogue for middle grade fiction, short stories, and articles, I love vintage clothing ... both wearing and selling it.

You can see my vintage handiwork at my Etsy shop. And my blog to go with it. I'm on Instagram, too. Mostly fashion stuff at IG, but there you go.
