I'm pleased to announce the recent publication of my short stories, ​​"Mother: Interrupter," "The Day Ends Darkly, A Musical Tale From the American West" and "The Date." Other short stories I've published are: "I Have Never Been Murdered," "Grad School Daydreams," and "A Cowboy's Journey," after the release of a (long) short story, "Quiet Desperation." My teen novel, "Perfected By Girls," about sophomore Melinda Radford, navigating life while being the lone girl on her high school wrestling team, follows the novels, "Over The End Line," and my debut novel, "Pinned." My novels have been positively reviewed in Publishers Weekly, The ALAN Review, School Library Journal, VOYA, Booklist, AudioFile and Kirkus. In addition, "Pinned" was chosen as a Jr. Library Guild Selection, Capitol Choices nominee, and nominee for YALSA's 'Best Book For Young Adults.' I regularly have speaking engagements at public libraries and schools to discuss writing, being an entrepreneur, audiobook publishing, and the importance of education with middle and high school students.
