I seek to write propulsive and startling fiction, and I sometimes venture into the realms of poetry and non-fiction when the muse strikes. I recently graduated with my MFA in creative writing/fiction from Brigham Young University, where I teach first year composition and technical writing to undergraduates. Here you can find links to my books, online publications, teaching philosophies, and more.
My favorite authors are Kurt Vonnegut and C. S. Lewis, but I love reading in so many genres. Follow me on Goodreads to see what I am reading now.
My husband, Martin Earl, is Culinary Editor for ThermoWorks. I also have four wild children who keep me feeling both young and old at the same time.
In addition to reading and writing, I love gardening and preserving. I also have a small flock of chickens.
