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!
I graduated summa cum laude with a BA in English and a concentration in creative writing. Currently, I work full-time as a Communications Specialist.
During my free time, I enjoy playing the piano, practicing Japanese and learning Dutch (I desperately want to be able to speak more than one language!), playing video games, cooking, and reading and writing just about anything! My writing has earned the Steven G. Kellman Endowment (2019) for creative non-fiction and ten 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 the Writers of the Future Contest. 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!
