Welcome to my website.
I live in LA where I write, produce, teach, daydream, and mother two young kids. I am the author of ‘Light Years,’ a novel for young adults published in 2017 by Simon Pulse. When I was 25, I co-founded Cooper’s Town Productions with Philip Seymour Hoffman and produced the Academy Award-winning film, ‘Capote,’ along with Hoffman’s directorial debut ‘Jack Goes Boating.’ Most recently, I produced Jeff Roda’s upcoming feature ‘18 To Party.’ My writing has appeared in Self, Rookie, Refinery29, Culture Trip, and beyond. I’ve run three marathons, slowly, and hold a degree from Brown University in art-semiotics, the study of how images make meaning. I believe children are way more perceptive, sophisticated, and intelligent than adults typically give them credit for and I write for the teenager who is ready to claim their own worldview and be grounded in their own power.
I would be thrilled to do a workshop at your school or video chat with your book club. Please be in touch, I would love to hear from you!
