I hold a Masters in nonfiction writing from the University of East Anglia (UEA) in the United Kingdom and was a student in Northwestern's Creative Writing program. I’ve written for the UK’s Bad Idea magazine, Yoga Chicago, and Literary Mama and have won an award with the SCBWI for my nonfiction for kids. I also lead the SCBWI-Illinois continuing education program for authors. When not writing for children, I tell stories about motherhood and marriage at The Moth and The People Tree. Recently, one of my stories was featured on Matthew Dick's SpeakUp podcast. Listen to it here.
