Look Back on 2022

In spite of my health being not great, 2022 was actually a pretty good year for writing/authoring.

I had my first ever author event at This House of Books in Billings, Montana.

I represented Chicken Scratch Books at a homeschool conference in Houston, Texas. Talking with all of the homeschool families, and especially kids interested in writing, was so much fun.

I gave my first in-person writing workshop for kids, in East Texas. It was a blast!

And the big thing (for me): I realized a week or two ago that I actually wrote 30,000 words this fall!! For the way I’ve been feeling the last couple of years, this is a huge accomplishment. I think it’s pretty choppy writing thus far, but the story itself is actually going smoothly for the first time in ages. So yay!

I hope you all had a decent 2022 and that 2023 will be a good year.

About Me

I have always loved writing stories, but I was surprised as an adult to learn I love teaching as well. I hold a B.A. in Digital Writing and an M.F.A in Writing for Children and Young Adults. Fantasy has always been my first love in literature. Superheroes and science fiction also hold a special place in my heart. My favorite audience is middle grade readers, but I enjoy young adult fiction as well.
