Reader

I’m a reader. I love books. I am obsessed with books. I decorate with books. Sometimes, when I can’t sleep at night, I count books. To see what I’ve read, what I’m reading, and what I someday hope to read, connect with me on Goodreads. Or you can check out a few of my favorites here.

Writer

I’m a writer. I write poems, shorts stories, horror, middle grade novels, and lots of to-do lists. My work has appeared in numerous publications, including Daily Science Fiction, Nature Futures, The Texas Poetry Calendar, and Writers Weekly. You can find the full list of my published work here.

Teacher

I’m a teacher. I’ve taught seventh grade English for longer than my students have been alive, which makes me sound really old. Teaching is wonderful, stressful, hilarious, and heartbreaking. Some days my students wow me with their brilliance and compassion. Other days I have to call the nurse because one of them stuck a paper clip in his eye. Read about the highs and lows of the job here.

Animal Lover

I love animals. My husband and I have three high-maintenance cats and one adorable dog. We also have a lot of wildlife around our yard, so I spend a good portion of my time watching squirrels and baby raccoons climb our trees and listening to coyotes and screech owls serenade us. Oh, and once I saw a snake eating a snake in the backyard.

Coffee Drinker

When I’m not reading, writing, grading papers, or vacuuming pet hair, I enjoy walking my dog, doing yoga, making items for my Etsy shop, and watching shows like iZombie and Stranger Things. Oh, and drinking coffee. I drink a lot of coffee. Luckily, Austin has some really awesome coffee shops.
