My work
I'm the editor and publisher of Sisters Born, Sisters Found: A Diversity of Voices on Sisterhood, which was selected as the best Women’s Issues book in the 2015 Next Generation Indie Book Awards. Previously, I released the flash fiction collection, The Ice Cream Vendor's Song, and the double award-winning childhood memoir, Reversible Skirt.

In all my work, I strive to illuminate truths that are often hidden and encourage others to do the same. Inspired by the many forms creativity can take, I am particularly drawn to the magic of language—how just a few words can evoke laughter or tears, curiosity, rage or solace. But most of all, I am thrilled by the way stories can heal, empower and connect us to the deepest, most beautiful parts of ourselves.
