I'm a Content Marketing Specialist, author, mother and wife, living in the Minneapolis area. Currently at work on my (as-of-yet-unnamed) fourth novel, my first two, The Red Balloon and Choosing Grace, are available on amazon.com. The Sum of Us will be available in 2017.


I began writing short stories, publishing in such literary journals as StoryQuarterly, Northwest Review and Hopewell Review, among others. After my third child entered school, I began work on what became The Red Balloon and haven't looked back.  


I have a Master's Degree in English from New York University and a B.A. from DePauw University.
