• I spent my childhood sneaking into wardrobes hoping to find Narnia. Now that I’m older, people think that’s creepy, so I write middle grade instead. My stories for children feature the natural world, folklore, mythology, history, and all that is magical about those things. In addition to helping run From The Mixed Up Files of Middle Grade Authors, I work as a developmental editor for Author Accelerator, contribute regularly to The Winged Pen, and am the incoming Co-RA of SCBWI Western Washington. I’m represented by the amazing Jennie Dunham of Dunham Lit.
