As I write this I’m also wrestling with my youngest daughter, who keeps trying to put her tiny feet all over my keyboard. That’s me: a mom/wife and writer struggling to find the balance between two things that make me happy.
In my mom/wife life, I stay home with three amazing little blonde girls aged seven, five, and three. I’m 30, and I feel like I’m in that place where I still have one foot in Young Mom (babies and diapers and pushing a stroller around campus) and the other in Soccer Mom (kids starting school and realizing you haven’t been in college for… you know, a while). My husband works in road construction, which means the girls and I spend a lot of time hanging out at home during the summer. I may or may not have issues keeping my house clean.
I didn’t truly start writing fiction until 2009, after I had graduated college (though I did dabble a bit in high school). I got serious in 2012, when I joined my first writing group. In 2013 I won first place in the Adult Speculative Fiction genre of the LDS Storymakers first chapter contest with an entry from my story Traveler. In March of 2014 I signed with my amazing agent, Marlene Stringer. This year, 2015, I’m debuting with an entire trilogy from Harlequin’s Carina Press (check out the “books” page for more info)!
