Writing

GENERAL

I write for academic and general audiences. My creative non-fiction has been recognized as one of Literary Mama’s annual “Best of.” My research on forensic philology received an Institute for Culture and Society Outstanding Research Award, and my work on writing research was nominated for a John Hayes Award.

FICTION

I’m currently at work on my debut novel, Untitled, a literary thriller in which a young woman, married under mysterious circumstances, is in grave danger. To protect herself and her unborn child, she must find a way to escape.

I’m an active member of the amazing and wonderful WFWA, where I serve as a reader for the STAR Award, as a editorial team member for Inside WFWA, and as a participant in an exceptional critique group.

I also participate in the Tacoma Writers Group and the Pacific Northwest Writers Association.
