When did you start writing?

I started writing in fourth grade when I was nine years old! I published my first book, Diary of the Gold Rush one year later in fifth grade.

How did you learn so much about writing?

I'm self-taught! I've never taken any Creative Writing classes; everything I learned was from my past experiences as well as research.

Do you beta-read or provide editing services?

Due to the intensity of my schedule, I'm no longer available for beta-reading or editing. However, my availability often changes, so check back here often!

Do you teach classes?

Yes, I do! Check out the 'Classes' page for more information!

What do you do outside of writing?

I'm an aspiring entrepreneur! I'm the founder of The Young Expressionists (theyoungexpressionists.org), a non-profit organization with the mission of sharing skills to inspire others. I'm also the co-founder of Quillmates (quillmates.com), a soon-to-be-launched online storytelling platform that focuses on introducing a new way for all creatives to effectively and efficiently market + monetize their stories.
