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 might be done with formal education. Maybe.
I live in New Orleans, Louisiana with my two cats named after dead poets. Aside from reading and writing, I enjoy traveling the world taking pictures, digital painting, video games, exploring digital antiquaria, and learning new things daily. My biggest unfulfilled dream is to write and design a video game.
