I’m a middle school history teacher, and writer of YA Speculative Fiction.
I’ve built my life around stories and story telling. I received a Masters in History from the University of Utah, and transitioned from academia to teaching. Now I spend my days steeped in historical stories while teaching 7th and 8th graders the importance of our past and how it relates to our future.
I’m deeply interested in how interconnected the past is to our present, and this comes out in my blog, as well as my fiction. I’m also a sucker for enemies to lovers, and lovers to enemies.
In my spare time I hang out with my husband, my kids, and my dogs. I run for “fun“, and I tweet about history and education, but also to taunt my local elected officials.
