I write science fiction and fantasy

Enjoy my latest reviews, essays, short stories, and other updates. Most of my reviews have writing tips that 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!

I graduated summa cum laude with a BA in English and a concentration in creative writing. Currently, I work full-time in higher education and tutor English on the side for my practicum to earn my TEFL certificate. 

My writing has earned the Steven G. Kellman Endowment (2019) for creative non-fiction and eleven honorable mentions from L. Ron Hubbard's Writers of the Future competition, a world-renowned writing contest. One of my goals this year is to submit a winning short story in this contest or to get a short story published elsewhere (aka 'pro out' as my fellow forumites on the WOTF forum would say).


My biggest goal is to complete my five-year-long work in progress and to get it traditionally published. I am considering returning to blogging and YouTube to provide updates!
