Welcome ME to the Horror Writers Association!

Congratulations to ME for finally makign the investment in myself. What better place for a writer who had to be told, “You CAN’T put homicidal tampons in a children’s book!”

Don’t worry – they became eyelash curlers, which are in some ways worse.

Being a writer has been a strange experience for me – frankly, as a woman in STEM, I have run into a lot of gatekeeping from skeptical family and friends who either don’t get it, or don’t believe in me, or both.

The friendships I’ve found in SCBWI have gone beyond writing advice (though that’s been invaluable) into “people who walk in when everyone else walks out” territory.

Let the wild rumpus start!
