It’s been a whirlwind of a year and a long time, no blog post type of year.
But! I’m back at it.
Over the last few months, I have started interning for the amazing, award-winning author Cynthia Leitich Smith on her Cynsations blog. You can catch me interviewing authors, creating social media content, and writing articles. I’ve always been a fan of her work and I’m happy to be working in the industry I love.
In addition to Cynsations, I’ve launched my own freelance business, writing for clients across the US. Writing is my passion and I’m excited about the opportunity to pursue it fully.
Also, I have a few other projects in the works that I’m incredibly excited about. First, I’m developing and teaching a summer writing enrichment program for local middle schoolers. It’ll include writing, craft talks, author visits, books, and more. Teaching young adults has always been another passion of mine. I’m excited to bring the craft to them and spend a summer listening to their stories.
In addition to these projects, I’m working away on different manuscripts. I have three middle grade novels in progress along with two picture books in progress. All in various stages (one simmering, two in the research phase, one being revised, and one so close to being done my fingers are itching to get back to it). Querying comes next! It’s exciting and nerve wracking all at once, but I wouldn’t have it any other way.
Finally, I’m hoping to be a lot more faithful over here on the blog. You’ll be seeing book reviews, writing tips and resources, along with anything else that comes up!
Thanks for sticking around! More to come…
