Yep, that's me, tooting my own horn today. (You can stop covering your ears now).

Some of you may know I like to write fiction. I don't have anything published yet, but that doesn't mean my name isn't available in print. Here's the story.

I have several amazing critique partners. They read my manuscripts, tell me what works and what doesn't--even on a line-by-line basis. That can look like this:

I do the same thing for my critique partners too. And some of them have been published already.

So I might not have any of my own novels published yet, but I am incredibly proud to have worked with Caitlin, Vicki, Emma and my other critique partners who will surely be published some day soon. My CPs are all amazing, and I feel priviliged to work with all of them.


  1. This makes my heart so happy! I'd love to see my name in someone's acknowledgements one day! <3

    1. Thanks, Carissa! Yes, it's so much fun. And I'm sure you'll see your name there too someday!
