Injustices
Last summer,   Old Kitty    posted about Neil Gaiman’s writing
prompt in   The Guardian.     I saw the post too late, but the
prompt stuck in my head: It wasn't
just the murder, he decided. Everything else seemed to have conspired to ruin
his day as well. E...

Worst Idea for a Novel Ever
So, I’m dreaming last
night… (Don’t leave. I swear—it’s not just a post where I’m sharing
my dream. Mostly.) And this teenage girl
has a pizza. She wants to put it in storage on the Long Island Railroad while
she rides home, but they want to charge her $30....

I'm glad you're working through those insecurities. I hit some really low points sometimes. Writing through them helps.

Story
Tagline
"I am what time, circumstance, history, have made of me, certainly, but I am also, much more than that. So are we all." - James Baldwin
Introduction

I have several short pieces published in anthologies and journals, such as Vine Leaves Literary Journal, Halcyon magazine, 100 Stories for Queensland, 100 RPM, Fangtales, and From Stage Door Shadows. While my published works are for adults, I primarily write for children, and I'm active in the New England chapter of SCBWI (Society for Book Writers and Illustrators). 

I live in Arlington, Massachusetts with my husband, two children, a dog-like cat, and a cat-like dog. For my day job, I work as an aide in a public school, which gives me ample opportunity to observe teens and tweens in their natural habitat.
