About me

A writer/editor of both nonfiction and fiction, I am pursuing my MA in English & Creative Writing from Southern New Hampshire University, and expect to graduate in May of 2015. As a member of Sigma Tau Delta, an international English honors society, and the National Society of Leadership and Success, I believe in the value of personal goal-setting, accountability, and high quality work.

With over 7 years of writing experience, I have written blog and website content, as well as feature work and short fiction for various markets.

I have published historical short fiction with The Copperfield Review, and am writing a novel that takes place in the late nineteenth century about a young man who goes to sea, seeking his fortune and the truth about his father’s death.
