• I’m a member of a critique group I found through our KS/MO SCBWI and I’m also a 2019 Pitch Wars alum for my middle grade novel: MURPH MEETS A DEMON. I’ve been a professional writer for almost 20 years, freelancing for both online and print content. My background is in marketing and my favorite job was working as the Preschool Reading Program Director at my local library.
