me

Some people are born with a silver spoon in their mouths… I was born with a pen.

I started writing silly poems as a child and moved onto stories in elementary school, where I had my first writing accomplishment of two published books in the school library. (Don’t be too impressed, they accepted everything.)

I never stopped writing, but became more serious in 2010, when I wrote two awful novels and then enrolled in the MFA of creative writing program at Carlow University. (This program is absolutely amazing. Highly recommend it. Highly.) I graduated in 2015 and have been unstoppable ever since!

I write like a fiend and read like a maniac and always have multiple projects happening at once. Most of my fiction contains some element of fantasy/sci-fi/supernatural/paranormal, though I’ve been known to write in many genres. I have more than 6 short stories published.

Between writing and reading, I write for others, do web sites, and most anything book-related: editing, marketing, formatting, book cover design, etc. I am a freelancer living the dream life and working wherever I can find an outlet and free wi-fi.

I’m married to an amazingly supportive man who shares my love of fantasy and sci-fi and captivated me from the start by choosing his online dating profile name from Middle-earth. I’m the mother of an 11-year-old and step-mother of a 7-year-old, who both keep me laughing and remind me that silly is a crucial element in our day. We also have 3 cats, who see my writing time (or yoga time) as cuddle time (and I’m down with that!)

I’ve been told that I am “uniquely unique” and “more entertaining than cable.” Also, I talk a lot ;)
