• A journalist and editor for 20 years, my work has been published in the Vermont College of Fine Arts online literary magazine Hunger Mountain among other publications. I write stories for middle-grade and young-adult readers, and my third novel was a finalist in the Texas Writers League manuscript contest and won the Houston SCBWI Joan Lowery Nixon Award in 2012. I’m also the Regional Advisor for the Austin SCBWI chapter and a freelance editor with Yellow Bird Editors. My writing is represented by Rachel Orr at Prospect Agency.
