I am a Saint Louis native, with degrees in psychology and nursing. I recently left the nursing field and am just beginning to write again after a long hiatus. I recently completed my first young adult novel and am excited about my next project, an anthology of short stories. I live with my husband and two children in Winston-Salem, North Carolina. I currently have a flash fiction piece entitled “Straight to the Top” shortlisted in a competition on Mashstories.com.
