About Me

After spending most of my life in Pennsylvania, I entered Gettysburg College in 2014 to study English and History.  While an undergrad, I joined the Advanced Studies in England (ASE) programme in Bath, Somerset, where my lifelong love of the UK was solidified.  I graduated with a Bachelor of Arts in 2018.

I’ve been writing for as long as I can remember and first took up journalism with my high school newspaper.  When I went to college, I founded Her Campus at Gettysburg and worked on a variety of college and off-campus publications.  Despite flirting with a variety of jobs, I kept coming back to writing in some way.

I launched a lifestyle blog, For the Sake of Good Taste, in June 2017 and have since grown the site to work with a variety of brands and organisations. In January 2021, I rebranded and relaunched the blog as An Ideal Life.

In July 2017, I published Mistakes Were Made: A Poetry Collection. Since then, I have had a variety of works in progress, both poetry and otherwise.  I have poems forthcoming in a wide variety of publications.

In 2018, I launched Nightingale & Sparrow, a small press literary magazine, which published its inaugural issue in February 2019.

Micro: a microchapbook of micropoems, my second book, was published in 2019.

My third book, How My Cat Saved My Life and Other Poems was published by Bottlecap Press in 2019.

My fourth book, Three Words, was published by Bottlecap Press in 2020.

Plight of the Pangolin was published by Vociferous Press (an imprint of Nightingale & Sparrow), with a portion of the profits going to the Pangolin Crisis Fund in 2020.

My sixth book, Boleyn, was published by Twist in Time Press in September 2020.

When I’m not writing? You’ll probably find me with a cup of coffee, my cat, Fitz, and a book, Stardew Valley, or the desperate need for a nap.
