It’s Pitch Wars time and the submission window is looming, so that means procrastinating by writing a bio!
A Little About Me
I’ve been writing since I was 12, when I realized writing books was way more fun (and easier) than drawing comics. I still draw from time to time, things like this:
(which you can get on a sticker over at my Redbubble!) And sometimes I draw my characters:
But writing… you just can’t beat it.
I started looking for representation for my second novel back in 2015, but I quickly realized (as I tried to write the query letter) that book was a disaster that should never see the light of day. I moved on, and have since written 6 manuscripts total, and I have plans for… so many more.
I have a BA in English Literature, which means I sometimes do pretentious things like call the opening pages of a novel the incipit. But more importantly, it means I’m used to meeting deadlines. I thrive on deadlines (NaNoWriMo is my favorite time of the year!) and I’m an insufferable over-achiever when it comes to surpassing personal goals.
That means, potential mentors (I say, wiggling my eyebrows), I’m ready to work. I shelved this manuscript for almost a year, and when I dusted it back off, I realized so much was out of whack. I’ve revised the heck out of it in the past month, but I know with some guidance I can take it to new levels of awesome.
What manuscript, you say? Why, I’m glad you asked!

Thanks to all the mentors (and to Brenda!) for making Pitch Wars such a warm and welcoming community. I already feel like a winner, and I’ve learned so much and grown so much as a writer.
