Enjoy my latest writing tips, essays, short stories, and book updates. Most of my writing tips are inspired by the close reading of works I am fond of. This may be useful for a wide range of fiction writers. All this and more will be found on my blog (updates every 1st & 3rd Wednesday). 


I graduated summa cum laude with a BA in English and a concentration in creative writing. I currently work as a Subject Matter Expert and a Digital Customer Experience Specialist. 

During my free time, I enjoy playing the piano, learning Japanese, as well as reading/writing just about anything. My writing has earned the Steven G. Kellman Endowment (UTSA '19) for creative non-fiction and six honorable mentions from Galaxy Press. I hope this year one of my short stories will achieve a finalist position in their Writers of the Future Contest. My biggest goal is to complete my four-year-long work in progress and to get it traditionally published.
