I am represented by Britt Siess of Martin Literary Management. I live in Hannibal, MIssouri, boyhood hometown of legendary author Mark Twain. My favorite activities include running around town with a camera and spying on the tourists.

Shh! They think I'm one of them. 



About Me

I grew up in Illinois and lived near Chicago for over a decade. Urban exploration tops my list of non-writerly things to do.

My family and I live right next to the Mississippi River. I enjoy exploring the vast shoreline of this quaint touristy town, which gives me endless inspiration for stories. 

My first career began as a fifth grade teacher. I also taught art for almost a decade and acquired a passion for art history.
