I am focusing on novels at the moment if you would like a list or sample from my other writing in animation, television, films, shorts, and kid lit please send me a message. Thank you so much.

My Writing Journey

I love storytelling! I have professionally written kids' books, novels, short stories, screenplays, shorts, TV shows, graphic novels, and magazine articles.

I wrote my first teen novel at age thirteen about a boy named Larry, on a typewriter. I never attempted to get it published, but my heart fell in love with telling stories. I am now focusing on novels and will have an author page up when ready.

 

Stay tuned for more about that. 

In the meantime, here are some of the things I have worked on recently. Thanks so much for swinging by!
