My story starts the way you might expect: I absorbed books as a kid, so I found a career that lets me write, too. This led me to get two degrees in literature. I will receive my MA in 2018 after completing my literary nonfiction thesis at the University of Nevada, Las Vegas.
I’ve written everything from fiction to essays with some (random) listicles in between. You can find my short story “Ripple Effect” in Kindling Anthology Vol. III published by Writer’s Edit Press (in print!). My essays are in the pages of Bella Grace. I also have several interviews and reported pieces in various city magazines, where I (occasionally) interviewed celebs like Steve Madden but more frequently wrote about my hometown. One of my favorite things that I’ve recently written is an essay for Darling Magazine called “How to Live a Life of Reading with No Regrets.” I’m also a reader for lit mag The Believer.
Books have always been a major part of my life– I’ve been an editorial intern, library shelver, English instructor, and freelancer. Not to mention that I own a typewriter from 1948 that I’ve attempted to write with. Up next– author!
