Welcome! I’m a writer, and I live in Maine with my family and a black cat named Mitzi. I earned my MFA from the University of New Hampshire in Creative Nonfiction, and my work has appeared in a variety of print and online publications (you can read almost all of them here). I’ve published two writing guides (DIY Writing Retreat and DIY Chick Lit) with KMR Publishing–you can buy them here and on Amazon. I love charts, tables, and prompts–concrete steps to take with one’s writing–and both of my guides are packed full of those.
I am represented by Sharon Pelletier of Dystel, Goderich & Bourret. My MFA thesis was a memoir about my year in an evangelical church. I’ve also written three novels that feature adventurous women.
Other fun facts: I love to run. I’m half Cuban. I spend most of my free time making stuff. My (current) all-time favorite books are The Thirteenth Tale by Diane Setterfield, The Inn at Lake Devine by Elinor Lipman, and Where’d You Go, Bernadette by Maria Semple. You can see more of what I’m reading right now here.

I’ll email you when I write or publish something new–roughly monthy & no fluff!
