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, learning Japanese, and reading and writing just about anything! My writing has earned the Steven G. Kellman Endowment (2019) for creative non-fiction and nine honorable mentions from Galaxy Press. One of my goals this year is to submit a winning short story 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. I am considering returning to blogging and YouTube to provide updates!
