Hi! I live in Brooklyn and work full time in children’s publishing at a dream-come-true kind of job. I’m also a YA author, and I teach social media courses at New York University’s Center for Publishing.
I grew up on the shores of South Jersey and every day I miss the sand between my toes, but only the cold sand, because the beach in winter is pretty much my favorite thing ever. I then graduated from The College of New Jersey in 2001 (magna cum laude, English, Women’s & Gender Studies) and moved to the NYC area (too many apartments to count). Sometimes I think I will never leave New York…and other times I think, Why on earth have I stayed so long? This constant battle of wills is exhausting.
I have a daughter and a husband and a near-constant hankering for olives and good cheeses and anything witchy.
You can also find me at Writing in Real Life, a podcast series.
