Hello, hello! Thank you for stopping by!

By day, I am a cubicle witch at a Fortune 500 company. By night, I am a scribbler in pajamas. I tried to get serious about this writing thing, but I quickly learned it's better not to take yourself seriously at all!

I'm originally from the Midwestern U.S. (ope, I just had to sneak that in). I moved to Virginia in 2015 to follow my dream job. I live here with my geeky husband, an opinionated cat, and a ferret who already thinks you're his best friend.

I'm a ten-time NaNoWriMo winner (2007; 2012-2020) and it's always the highlight of my year.

LIKES: Iced coffee; gin; em dashes; ice cream that is more chocolate than ice cream; mountains; socks; murder ballads.

DISLIKES: Conflict; social occasions; driving; misplaced modifiers.

No read requests, please! If you'd like to work out an exchange, shoot me a PM and we'll see what sounds right. :)

Much love,
