After graduating with a BA in English and history (where I didn't learn anything about that battle of New Orleans), I taught 7th grade language arts for eight years. That's where I fell in love with YA books.
Wanting to share my passion for books with more kids, I earned a Master of Library Science degree and switched to an elementary school. I loved sharing great books with kids, but I missed writing with my students.
So, I started writing on my own. My first book was a flop, and I didn't even finish it. Then, Ellie kept popping up in my head, and I had to write her story. Worth the Wait was released on 2-4-14.
