I’m a writer in wild, wonderful West Virginia. I make things up! I have been coaching 8th-12th graders on creativity, problem-solving, and writing for 11 years.

I started this blog as a part of my creative journey and to connect with other creatives. I want to offer ideas, encouragement, and tips that have made a huge difference in my own life, and to hear what others have to say about the topics that inspire us the most!

If you’re new to this space, start here. Thanks for visiting!
