I'm just a mom raising two superheroes, aka two autistic daughters. I'm looking for redemption and validation of my dreams. I'm pursuing a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Creative Writing with a minor in Women's Gender and Sexuality Studies at Central Washington University, to be followed by a Masters of Fine Arts in children's writing. I'm a member of the International Women's Writers Guild, The Society of Children's Book Writers and Illustrators, and 5 time NaNoWriMo participant. If I find any spare time, I play video games, watch The Umbrella Academy, smash the patriarchy, follow my Air Force husband around, and quote Adventure Time into normal conversation.
