I grew up in Manhattan, Kansas (the "Little Apple"), where I sang in all the choirs and wrote for the high school newspaper. I majored in voice performance at the University of Kansas before deciding I had no business trying to make a career as an opera singer. Then I transferred to journalism school, where no one cares if you can hit a high C or convincingly play a Valkyrie, and became a reporter covering everything from house fires to Hollywood premieres.
These days, I write event scripts and marketing copy while the sun is out. By night, I write books for young adults. I live in Cincinnati with my husband, two daughters, one dog and three cats, and I still sing sometimes when my schedule allows. When I’m not writing or running around doing Mom Things, you’ll find me at the ballet, or obsessively watching ballet on YouTube and Instagram.
I am represented by Holly Root at Root Literary.
