YA nerd, convention planner & writer of book-shaped things


Passion is a limitless resource

AKA: about me & the stuff I'm into

My Books

See what I’ve written & what I’m working on.


Posts on writing, process, trends & just what I’ve been working on.

Agent Interviews

I love agents & the industry, and hearing what makes them tick. I’ve interviewed a variety of top and up & coming YA literary agents, to help querying writers find their perfect match!

Writing Resources

I’m a Ravenclaw, which means I love compiling information. These are some of my favorite writing resources, including highlights from my own blog.


A Harry Potter & YA Literature convention happening July 7-10, 2016. I’m on the organizing board for Leviosa, and am in charge of Marketing and the YA Literature & Writing Tracks for the con.

DragonCon YA Lit Track

I’ve been on the volunteer staff for the DragonCon YA Literature Track since 2012. DragonCon is the largest sci-fi/fantasy convention in the Southeast, boasting attendance of over 70,000 in 2015. The YA Lit track features a variety of amazing authors, and as a staffer I assist with panel brainstorming, modding, the annual Yule Ball, and generally keeping the track running.


I am one of the mods for the YA writing sub-reddit YAwriters. A bustling, professional & supportive community for published & aspiring YA writers alike, we host an AMA (Ask Me Anything) with a YA professional every Monday, and moderate a discussion topic every Thursday.


WriteGirl is a non-profit organization based in Los Angeles that pairs professional women writers with under-served teen girls age 13-18 to mentor them in writing at both monthly writing workshops and in weekly, one-on-one mentoring sessions. It’s an incredible organization I am proud to volunteer with, in particular as part of the Education Support team, which helps WriteGirl juniors and seniors prepare, search and apply for college. 100% of WriteGirls are accepted into college.

Social Media


I tweet a fair amount, mostly about YA lit, nerdy things & feminism.


I love to Tumble about YA lit, feminism & social justice, nerdy things, dress porn & writing.


Find boards for my books, Harry Potter, general geekery & more.
