My first career was in engineering. I have a B.S. in chemical engineering and a M.S. and doctorate in fuel science. After spending five years in the auto industry, I resigned in 2013 to become a stay-at-home mother and pursue a career in writing. Since then, I launched a freelance writing business and concurrently held various roles with Scribe Publishing Company: project manager, editorial assistant and business manager (presently). I volunteered as a copyeditor with Hippocampus Magazine for one year.
I’m currently developing the premise for a dystopian fiction novel and outlining another novel a friend and I cooked-up in 2015. I wrote Undone in 2014 and am working to revise it as I prepare to pitch it to agents!
