About me

There's something about middle grade books that I can't find on the YA or adult shelves. At no other time are we ready for whimsy or magic or joy as when we are around 7 to 14 years old. We can sense the extraordinary and still be excited that maybe, MAYBE one day we too can be a student of magic...or perhaps a talking mouse or an apprentice hedgewitch or that we could fly on the back of a luck dragon. 

I love these stories. I revel in solid worldbuilding and delight in carefully crafted magic systems. That's what I want to offer kids -- that same joy I felt reading middle grade fantasy. Right now, I'm writing with the goal to finish my manuscript in 2024 and begin revisions. If you want to get in touch with me, just head over to the Contact page.

I wish you joy and whimsy and magic, too.
