Hello there. I'm an author and editor of Young Adult fiction. There's nothing I love more than diving into a story and getting to the nitty gritty of what it will take to make it shine. My specialty genres are anything YA, fantasy, myth/folklore, science-fiction, dystopian, or paranormal. I graduated Summa Cum Laude with a B.A. in English Literature and minor in Theatre from Grand Canyon University.
