Born and raised in Southern Indiana, this Hoosier transplanted herself to the Windy City after graduate school. My passion is teaching, with writing come a close second and gaining momentum. I currently teach at the College of DuPage (part-time faculty, hoping for a full-time gig soon!). I was promoted to third-degree black belt in hapkido fall 2012 and am affliated with the US Hapkido Federation.
I'm currently working on a vampire novel, along with various short stories, novellas and even the next great American sci-fi novel. (Modest I'm not LOL.) I currently have three short stories published through XoXo Publishing, as well as a novella to be published through them as well sometime this year. Please check out the Published Works page for more information and links to order!
