These epic stories planted the very first seeds of inspiration, fueled my vivid imagination, and drove me to chase real-life adventure. I graduated from the University of Massachusetts Amherst with a degree in English, and spent my junior year studying abroad in the UK. Since then, I have written professionally as a newspaper journalist, an editor in educational publishing, and a software technical writer. Chasing my dreams has now led me to write my first novel, and on my journey thus far as a writer, this is my absolute favorite place!
