About Me

Author of YA and MG novels

                       and other word babies.


I am the author of WHAT STARS ARE MADE OF, coming from FSG/Macmillan in 2020! I am represented by the absolutely phenomenal Brianne Johnson at Writers House. I got my MFA in creative writing from BYU and while Utah will always be my home, I've moved around a bit and currently live in the Seattle area.

Pretty much every area of writing interests me, and I regularly submit short stories, poetry, articles, and other fun things. I am a Slytherin (with a Hufflepuff exterior), overenthusiastic about most things, and a shmoosher of dog faces. My superpower is speaking fluent movie quotes. Major lover of Pixar, leather jackets, and Colin Firth.

Write on, friends!




We read to know that we are not alone.
