About me

Industry Publishing
Occupation Freelance writer
Location Charlotte, NC, United States
Introduction When I'm not snapping photos left and right I'm a Mom by day and a sleep deprived writer by night... I draw inspiration from my two little girls and use them as my writing guinea pigs. After writing a picture book, I read it to them and then ask, "What do you see?" I want my stories to be enriched with life through a child's eye along with their unlimited imagination. It's an awesome feeling when their tiny little faces brighten with the words I've written. I would love to share the brightness with others. As with picture books, I'm also dabbling in the young adult genre and having quite a bit of fun (probably too much fun). I just hope I have as much fun trying to get an agent to read it and get it published. Are you crossing your fingers? I've read that it takes a little bit of luck, a lot of talent, and a sprinkle of magic to actually get a book published. If I can somehow bottle the ingredients on my own journey, perhaps I can make it a little easier for the next writer on their own path.
Interests Writing YA fiction and children's picture books.
