BIOGRAPHY

Youngest of 6. Voracious reader, coffee drinker, cocktail enthusiast, beauty junkie, traveler and cat mom. Self professed champagne snob, fluent in Schoolhouse Rock, small craft gin, and overall Queen useless trivia.

My idols have always been authors, chefs and musicians. In a perfect world, I would have my own talk show where I’d invite a great chef to cook for us, my favorite musician to play for us, and we’d all sit down with one of my favorite writers for great food, music, and conversation.

Reading is fundamental. At least that’s what they told us as kids. What they didn’t tell us is that reading is an escape from the world - a journey, an exploration, an adventure, and a jumpstart into a broader world of imagination that we build for ourselves. For me, there’s nothing better than immersing myself into a world that I wish existed, whether as a reader or as a writer, and exploring what the world could be if we only had the courage to try.

    • Writing can be an emotionally draining and stressful pursuit. Any tips for aspiring writers?

      • Get out of your head and stop comparing! These two things alone, will kill your momentum, and keep you from writing.
        1. When the muse isn’t flowing, just start putting words on a page - it doesn’t matter if it’s nonsense, it’s the act of writing that’s important. Eventually, words will start to organize and flow. It doesn’t matter how much you write as long as you get something on the page, and be certain to congratulate yourself for the effort - no matter how small.
        2. Stop comparing your work to other authors. By all means, admire their style, aspire to be able to create worlds the way they do, but know that you are a different person. Your writing will be different, because your experiences are different, and the world is waiting to see what you bring to the party, not how well you imitate someone else.
        3. Never delete! There is always some kernel of good in everything you write, whether it’s a simple phrase, or the beginnings of an idea. If you trash entire paragraphs because it’s not shaping up the way you intended, you lose the small moments of greatness hidden within. I drop stuff into an “ugly” file, and then bring them out periodically to review. I’m always amazed at what small pieces of goodness I find hidden within, whether it’s a description, or the turn of a phrase, just things that weren’t working for what I was writing at the time, but fit perfectly in my current story.
