I'm an artsy, space-camp kid who's been acting, singing, and telling stories for my entire life - from performing on stage for the last 25 years and more recently in film, to teaching reading and writing to kids and kids at heart for over a decade. I'm interested in lots of stories in a variety of genres, but am most drawn to fantasy and sci-fi, especially in the YA and middle-grade world. I also love a good science-based non-fiction book. I currently work as the Associate Artistic Director for the award-winning children's literacy and arts organization The Story Pirates. I love spending lots of time outdoors soaking up the sun, and cannot get enough of a good jigsaw puzzle, a fresh pan of brownies, or a cozy cat nap.
