I first started writing as soon as I was old enough to hold a pencil and fold pieces of paper together. My first book, full of pictures of unicorns (I was too young to know how to write), started me on the writing path I'm still on today: exploring different realities through science fiction and fantasy.Since then, I've become better at "drawing pictures" with words than pencils. In addition to writing my own stuff, I'm also a teen services librarian and freelance editor and writer, writing primarily for children and teens. I most like to edit, workshop, coach, and proofread what I most like to read: novels and memoir. But I skillfully edit a wide range of materials to keep food on the table (and in my pets' dishes).In 2012, ACTA Publications released "Hungering and Thirsting for Justice: True Stories by Young Adult Catholics," which I co-edited with Kate Ward. My newest publication is "Rumpled," a novella retelling the story of "Rumpelstiltskin." I'm also working on pitching my young adult novel, Ever This Day, to agents and revising a novel based on "Rapunzel."

Don't let the cover fool you. This story may have come from a writers' workshop and likely self-published, but it reads like professional fiction. The story flows along pleasantly and absorbs for the afternoon it takes to read it (at least for me). As a fresh take on the Rumplestiltskin story told f...

I received an ebook copy of 'Rumpled' after taking part in a Booklikes giveaways.The plot is really interesting. The protagonist, called Rumpelstiltskin - "a twisted name" - , has to find a firstborn child under the age of 1 because he made a magical promise to his teacher Laurus: in exchange Rumpel...
