What do I like to read? How about what don’t I like to read??? I’m constantly learning about new subjects that I want to dive into - eyeballs first. In nonfiction, I have a particular love of anything related to women’s history. In fiction, I read just about everything under the sun, but I am especially drawn to stories with a historical or spooky angle. But that’s not to say I don’t also adore contemporary or lighthearted tales! Good storytelling can always find a place on my bookshelf.

When I’m not reading or designing awesome library programming, I love to write young adult novels. I’m very invested in creating stories for foster kids because I used to be one. The fact that I could never find authentic stories about foster kids when I was younger might be one reason why I grew up to become a librarian. Representation matters!
