In short

  • I am a middle school teacher by day and a writing ninja by night. I think writing for young adults is as enjoyable as it is difficult, but so important in the end. The right book can change someone's life in the most positive way and it is my dream to be the writer of that book.

    I also enjoy football, cheese, and Playstation. Not necessarily in that order, but often all at the same time.

  • I can eat a lot of pretzels and then fall asleep.

My Favorites: Reading and Writing

  • Fiction: Action/Adventure, Alternative History, Sci Fi/Fantasy, Young Adult/Juvenile

  • I think Harry Potter is the obvious choice.
  • John Green, Haruki Murakami, Marcus Zusak, David Sedaris, Lemony Snicket, Patrick Ness, J.K. Rowling
