My poems and stories have been published in several literary reviews, newspapers, magazines, and anthologies including Highlights for Children, Stories for Children, other children’s magazines, and Chicken Soup for the Child’s Soul (HCI 2007). Flutter Press released my poetry chapbook – Pacing the Moon – in 2009. The Tide Changers (Penumbra Publishing, 2011) is my debut middle grade book.
I trained as a classical ballet dancer, have a BFA in dance from Florida State University, and taught and choreographed for several years. Prior to writing fiction, I lived in Germany for a short time.
Currently, I live in northern Virginia with my husband, two children, and two cats.
