I am a completely normal person, and a writer.
I was born in St. Louis, Missouri, but I somehow landed in the ridiculously cold city of Milwaukee, Wisconsin. St. Louis became my permanent home when I was just 25 years old. I have been a special needs teacher, a nanny, a corporate trainer, an Internet radio station owner, a podcast host, and a writer. A self-professed insomniac, I do my best work at 3:00 am. When I’m not writing, I spend most of my time traveling, going to Broadway shows, and pretending I inherited a singing gene so I can belt out show tunes from my favorite cast albums. I am, also, an avid golf fan (watching, not playing).
The best thing I ever did for myself was move to London, UK to study Interdisciplinary Ethics. It sounds lofty, but I studied the European philosophers in their own backyard. I lived in London for two years, and while there, I found my “own” adult voice.
Now, I leverage my life experiences into short stories and personal essays. Those are my two favorite writing genres, but I am currently working on a book set during Pope John Paul II’s 36-hour visit to St. Louis in 1999.
