I’m a late bloomer, three times over – I married at 41, had my daughter at 44, and started writing screenplays at 47. In 2020, I won Best Feature Script at the Lake Travis Film Festival for my screenplay, “The Twisted Apple Sweetness Patrol.” I also enjoy other creative writing formats, scholarly writing, and writing for nonprofits. I have a Ph.D. from Indiana University and have written for academic publications, online learning companies, and trade journals in addition to more creative outlets. Born near Chicago, I’m a 6’0” Cubs fan living in Austin, Texas with my 6’9” husband, ever curious daughter, and loyal rescue dog.
