Being a writer means constantly learning and growing. I want to grow with you as I create projects, read great books, practice literary citizenship, and learn what it means to not only live a life that enriches my stories, but to write stories that enrich lives.

I write fantasy novels, teach first-year composition, and try to keep plants alive.

About me
What I’m working on

Join me as you…

Write what you love

This is about everything that happens behind the writing desk (or wherever I work, which is anywhere my laptop can fit)

Read what you love

I’m sharing book reviews specifically focused on craft and what we can learn from great writers.

Become what you love

This is about what happens away from the desk, from daydreaming to worrying to pitching at conferences. This is where we need each other the most to remind each other why we do this in the first place.
