I live in Homewood, Alabama which borders the city of Birmingham. I am married to Tim, and we have a daughter, Riley, and a son, Brady. I’m earning an MFA in creative writing from Seattle Pacific University and do freelance writing and copywriting. I've been a Christian for over 20 years and like to examine God's grace from many angles and explore spaces where grace intersects with everyday life. Making room for others and their stories is also a priority for me. I’m grateful to have a lot of opportunities to do so through my writing and through my roles as wife, mom, friend, and neighbor.
Some of my favorite things are gorgeous golden ginkgo trees in the fall, steaming hot toddies in the winter, new signs of life in the spring, and reading under an umbrella on the beach in the summer. Regardless of the season, I find joy in quiet mornings to myself while the rest of my family is still asleep, in learning about new musicians and authors and artists who do good work, and in experiencing those "A-ha" moments during the creative process.
