A little about me...

I grew up in New Jersey, but I consider my "hometown" to be in the suburbs of Washington, D.C., where I began my journey as an author. I currently live in the hot, dry desert of the southwest with my husband and our chocolate lab mix. Three things I'm a huge nerd about are children's books, indie music, and video games. I'd live in Disney World if I could, but I also hope to travel to places I've never been, both internationally and within the United States. I'm always on the lookout for story ideas!

I'm the author of WISHING FOR WASHINGTON, about a sister and brother who attempt to meet the president, and ONE HUNDRED THIRTY STARS, about a girl who attends a video game convention in hopes of getting to know her dad. Both books are available on My latest novel, CAMP NEVER, will be released on February 25, 2016.
