I write young adult fiction and non-fiction. Depression: Tips and Insights for Teenagers is my first book, published by Rowman & Littlefield in October 2020. My second book Dealing With Stress: Tips and Insights for Teenagers was published in July 2022. I am currently working on a third YA non-fiction book as well as a YA contemporary fantasy novel.
I love learning. I have a BA and MA in English literature from the University of New Orleans, a PhD in English literature from Louisiana State University, and an MFA in writing for children and young adults from the Vermont College of Fine Arts.
I live in New Orleans, Louisiana with my two cats. Aside from reading and writing, my interests include digital painting, traveling the world taking pictures, baking, researching the digital history of video games, and learning new things daily. My biggest unfulfilled dream is to write and design a video game.
