About Me

I am a recovering academic with a master’s degree and PhD in public health and a special interest in mental health. When I left my dream job in Psychiatry in 2019, people asked me what I would do instead. More than anything in the world, I wanted to write. In fact, I’ve always wanted to write—I’ve just been afraid to fail. But later in 2019, I hocked up the courage to try.

So, I’m new to this! I don’t have all the answers. I’m not the girl who will have a bazillion writing tutorials on her page because I simply do not know what to tell you. I suck at commas and using the word “had.” I’ve queried two books unsuccessfully and can give you a list of about 3,000 things NOT to do while querying. But I’m passionate, I’m a quick study, and I love what I do.

When I’m not writing, I’m hanging with Gracie the Golden or working in public health.
