My writing bug first appeared when I was seven years old and I wrote my first "book." I don't remember the title, but it was about how the stars in the sky were made. Not the scientific, correct version, but a fantastical tale about magic sand being tossed about the sky. As I got older, I found myself drawn to creative nonfiction and personal essay, leading me to earn my MFA from Lesley University in 2008.
I am now a full-time freelance writer, wife, and mother to a baby daughter. My writing has appeared in The Atlantic, The Washington Post, The Daily Beast, Woman's Day, Cosmopolitan, as well as college and university publications.
When not devouring a book (usually a memoir), I enjoy modern dance and ballet, cooking, photography, making my own beauty products, kvetching, and taking my daughter to the library. You can never start too early. I mean the library, not the kvetching.
