Once I was old enough to read, I developed a lifelong addiction to books, politics, and candles that smell like pumpkin pie. After graduating from Santa Clara University and a stint in its law school, I began to write little columns and, after a time, decided to send my portfolio to my hometown newspaper, The Patterson Irrigator. Soon, I had my very own column, Hometown Girl.
When I’m not devouring books or writing columns for the paper, I can be found tapping away at my laptop. In addition to being a freelance consultant, a part of the writing community at Medium and a contributor to The Mighty (an affiliate of The Huffington Post), I have written three young adult novel manuscripts and am currently working on a memoir.
