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 Washington Post, The Daily Beast, Vice Motherboard, Kveller, Barista Magazine, Vineyard Style Magazine, as well as college and university publications.
When not devouring a book (usually a memoir), I enjoy contemporary and modern dance, cooking, photography, kvetching, and taking my daughter to the library. You can never start too early. I mean the library, not the kvetching.
