I am a biologist and former high school science teacher with a loud family. My husband, kids, and I like big dogs and Tex-Mex. We quote absurd lines from movies and do outdoor things like hike (while complaining about hiking). Our rule-following German Shepherd thinks being off-leash at the dog park is total anarchy.

I write short stories, full-length fiction, and blog about lessons God teaches me. I try to find humor in the relatable everyday disasters that come with parenthood and being human.

One time I accidentally entered a writing contest in India and got a story published because of it. My novel A Body on the First Page is currently a semifinalist in American Christian Fiction Writers’ Genesis Contest.
