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 is forthcoming from Rowman & Littlefield in July 2022.
I am completing a MFA in children's and young adult fiction writing at the Vermont College of Fine Arts (graduating July 2022). I earned a PhD in English literature at Louisiana State University in 2019. I hold a bachelor’s degree in English literature with a special concentration in creative writing and minor in anthropology and a master’s degree in English literature from the University of New Orleans.
I live in New Orleans, Louisiana with my two cats, and I love going on adventures around the city with my partner. 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.
