I am a #1 New York Times bestselling ghostwriter, collaborator and writer. I grew up in St. Louis, MO, went to college at Wake Forest University and today live in the heart of Silicon Valley. I write the Substack newsletter The Mother Lode. My writing has been published in Scary Mommy, The Lily, Mutha Magazine, Isele Magazine, the Brevity Blog, and The Voices Project. I'm also the former publisher of Literary Mama

I began my publishing career as an editor at HarperCollins, where I spent nine years working with a diverse roster of authors including fashion publicist Kelly Cutrone, NIH director Francis Collins, Richard Foster, and Pulitzer Prize winner Jeffrey Marx. Today, ​I work with clients across the country to help them navigate the world of publishing, bring their ideas to the page, and transform their book idea into a form that is enticing to publishers and readers.
