I live in Birmingham, Alabama, right by the train tracks that cut through the city. I am married to Tim, and we have a daughter, Riley, and a son, Brady. I’m currently earning my MFA in Creative Writing from Seattle Pacific University. Making room for others and their stories is a priority for me. I’m grateful to have a lot of opportunities to do so through my roles as wife, mom, and volunteer with InSpero and Desert Island Supply Co.
The desk beside my bed is usually full of empty grapefruit La Croix cans and stacks of books. My car is full of pages of printed directions because I can’t seem to embrace GPS apps. And my iPhone is currently full of music by Taylor Swift, Beyoncé, Johnny Cash, The Beatles, and Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros.
You can find some of my writing here.
