I grew up in central Delaware, spending the majority of my childhood in libraries and museums. I spent more time researching, writing, drawing, and daydreaming.
Outside the library, I continue to grow and expand my interests.
I enjoy writing fiction and non-fiction, visiting cultural hot spots, and exploring the world around me. When asked, I teach remedial English, offer free resume help, and have worked tirelessly to continue my education. I am a strong advocate for mental health education and compassionate workplaces and actively promote a better understanding of anxiety. My Support Dog, Winston, and I travel together and take every opportunity to demystify the world of "invisible disabilities." His brother, Simon, is being trained as a service dog.
I am an avid reader of not-good-for-you romances, trashy novels, and picture books. I love animals, having been the mother of a pet rabbit and a few Guinea Pigs, Cats, and Dogs. I'm a traditional geek and love all things Star Trek, Star Wars, Harry Potter, Disney, comic-book related, and anything else I can get obsessed with for a short while.
I'm your all-around American girl!
I live in Maryland with my partner, Nathan, and four bonus children.
