Fun facts about me:
I am Wisconsin born and raised but lived in the San Francisco Bay Area after college for seven years before moving back to the Midwest. I love dogs (sometimes more than people), hiking, and traveling (you know...that thing we used to do pre-pandemic?). My ultimate dream is to buy a house in the Dolomite mountains of Northern Italy and live there permanently, surrounded by books and a couple of dogs, drinking wine all day, and writing books of my own.
Submissions should be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org
I am only accepting agented submissions at this time, however, I am open to unagented submissions from BIPOC writers.
