Hi there. I live outside of NYC and work in children’s publishing at a dream-come-true kind of job. I’m also a YA author, and I used to teach social media courses at New York University’s Center for Publishing. 

I grew up on the shores of South Jersey. Every day I miss the sand between my toes (but only the cold sand...the beach in winter is pretty much my favorite thing ever.). After graduating from The College of New Jersey (magna cum laude, English, Women’s & Gender Studies) I moved to the NYC area. 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 son 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.
