I was born and raised in the south, y'all. I got married at twenty, but I also owned a dance studio and graduated from college that year. So...not your typical twenty-year-old. We had three children that I homeschooled K-12, which was an amazing journey!
When my youngest was in high school, I got serious about writing.
I had dabbled, writing skits and plays for church. I even had a complete manuscript. (It was awful, but you can't edit a blank page, right?) It took eight years of workshops and critique groups before I managed to snag a literary agent with a YA Christian Contemporary.
I write YA (Young Adult) and MG (Middle Grade). I love all the genres: Epic Fantasy, Sci-fi, Contemporary, Magical Realism. All. The. Things.
I am still pre-published, but my foot is securely in the door! In the meantime, I continue to write new things--working on the next New York Times Bestseller right now! (It could happen.) AND I became a literary agent so I can help others realize their dreams of publication. I just launched a new agency, Lighthouse Literary! We accept Christian and secular submissions.
I've also had the pleasure of working on four film crews (If You're Gone, Be Still and Know, Most Wonderful Time, and All Is Calm) with writer/director/actress Brittany Goodwin and her production company. Check them out on Prime video or watch the trailers here. (I had a small part in If You're Gone and Most Wonderful Time and was an extra in All Is Calm, too!)
