She began her journey in journalism covering sports and local events for a small-town newspaper as well as publishing several online magazine articles and blog posts. After college, she worked as a pre-school teacher where she fell in love with children’s fiction and eventually picked up her pen to write her own. When she’s not writing books, she still loves to write and compete in Flash Fiction.
