IMG_0840I write books for young adult readers. I was born and raised in the Bay Area of California and was a founding staff member at a K-12 alternative school in San Francisco, where I live and work. When I’m not handing out bandaids or celebrating stories with my students, I write and paint, and love foggy early mornings at the ocean.

I am represented by Jennie Kendrick at the Red Fox Literary Agency.
