Thanks for coming over! A little about me. First things first: I'm not a wet nurse and never have been (sorry to disappoint!). I'm actually a nonprofit communications professional and freelance writer, and I live with my husband and son in the Chicago area. I like reality TV, checklists, celebrity gossip, reading, giving my unsolicited opinion and carbs.
I spent several years editing b-to-b magazines before shifting to nonprofit work, where I now work for an organization that helps homeless families get back on their feet. I love my day job, and being a mom and writer as well keeps me even busier! I write for several major beauty trade publications and companies, and I was a contributor to WOMEN REINVENTED: TRUE STORIES OF EMPOWERMENT AND CHANGE (LaChance Publishing, 2010).
My first novel, MILKED, was originally published by Simon & Fig in 2014, (Check out the Kirkus review here!) After Simon & Fig closed its doors, new Chicago-based publisher Lang Verhaal acquired rights to the novel. The novel was re-released in Spring 2019, and my next novel, POINTS, will be available on October 20, 2020! It's my YA debut, but should appeal to anyone who's 16 at heart. (Aren't we all?)
