I am a short story writer, essayist, satirist, poet, and freelance writer. I am currently working on my first novel, a speculative dual-narrative feminist story. My humorous chapbook of poetry about Paris, France is complete and looking for a small press home. The Best American Essays of 2018 book recently named my work as Notable Essay.
I write freelance articles on higher education, K-12 education, pop culture, inspirational profiles, business for creatives, and craft writing. I am also available for guest blogging and contest judging opportunities. Check out my Creative Writing Publications or my Freelance Portfolio.
When I'm not writing, I'm working on my business, Point of View Consulting, which specializes in application writing for future students and creatives. Applications don't have to be everyone's favorite thing, but I can promise that I'll make it much more fun! I also provide one-on-one feedback and coaching for creative writers.
Though I am temporarily living in Wyoming. I'll be relocating to Denver, Colorado in June 2018. I have ties to the Rust Belt, the Midwest, the South, and Tokyo. I once completed a solo-drive across the country with only my dog for company. I received my MFA in Fiction from Boise State University in 2016 and my BA in Creative Writing and Social & Cultural History from Carnegie Mellon University.
