After working as a staff writer for two years, I stepped out on my own to pursue creative writing. I'm a member of the SCBWI. I write YA fiction, children’s picture books, poetry, inspirational material, and I freelance. I hold a B.S. in Communication. My desire is to encourage others to live an amazing story.
If you're a YA novelist, and you have a complete book-length YA manuscript written why not have some fun and participate in the “Dear Lucky Agent” Contest on the Guide to Literary Agents blog. You can check out all the details here.
The GLA blog has articles covering a range of topics and interviews with people in the writing business.
