About

Writing is one of the hardest and most rewarding thing 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. I'm a freelance writer and copy writer. 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 goodness at my Etsy shop.
