I’m a journalist, fiction writer, educator, and editor that specializes in fantasy, fairy tales, children’s books, parenting, and more.
I’m a content writer for Book Riot and co-creator of Baby Librarians, a children’s book review website. I also run the social media for Baby Librarians on Instagram or Facebook. In addition to Book Riot and Baby Librarians, I’ve written bookish articles for StarTrek.com and Heard Tell. My fantasy and fairytale short stories and poems have appeared in Devilfish Review, NonBinary Review, Pulp Literature, and Expanded Horizons.
I have a MA in English from Belmont University and have taught college level English courses at Lipscomb University and O’More College of Art and Design. I’ve graded scholarship essays, assessed essays for placement into college courses, and analyzed improvements in university writing programs. I’ve also tutored students in English from elementary through high school.
As an editor, I’ve helped writers improve their fiction in all genres, as well as proofread and format documents. I’ve assisted writers by submitting their short stories and poems to publications and researching agents to submit book-length projects to.
I’m knowledgeable of WordPress; basic SEO practices; AP, APA, Chicago, and MLA writing styles; BlackBoard; Google Suite; Microsoft Office; Canva; social media; finding good images; and more.
I’m passionate about storytelling, helping to promote diverse and marginalized voices, and parenting from a feminist and scientific perspective. I live in Nashville, TN with my daughter, husband, and many, many books.
