After 10 years as a PR manager promoting everything from forklift rodeos to Hotel Olympics, I decided to stay home and write full-time. A member of SCBWI, I write young adult novels and am represented by Elizabeth Bewley at Sterling Lord Literistic. My debut novel, YOUR LIFE HAS BEEN DELAYED, will be published by Bloomsbury in winter 2021, followed by a second young adult novel in 2022.
I also offer freelance PR writing and editing. I have a particular expertise in commercial real estate and construction, but I’ve also worked with clients in industries as diverse as food distribution, non-profit, accounting, and law.
I have a bachelor’s degree from Baylor University, where I majored in English literature and minored in public relations. I also hold the Accredited in Public Relations designation from the Public Relations Society of America.
I live in St. Louis with my husband, two kids, one dog, two cats, and a guinea pig. In my free time, I read, watch too much TV, cross-stitch, volunteer at my kids’ school, bake amazing brownies, and play the violin both in a community orchestra and at church.
