As A Person
Unsurprisingly, this is the last section I am filling out because really, who am I, as a person?
I am an amateur author, an indie audio drama creator, a former Brooklyn-ite, and the wrangler of three cats: Inanna, Tempo, and Astrid.
I am also an aviation insurance underwriter, chronically ill, and a lover of so many fandoms. Reading and creating are my number one passions, and unfortunately I just don’t have enough time in the day.
As a Writer
I’ve heard so many writers that I love and respect talk about how they’ve gotten into writing, and truly, I am impressed they remember! I unfortunately do not, though I do have a copy of a story about a rabbit I wrote in first grade. I am more surprised it isn’t a horror story, to be honest!
Now a days I work on short stories, my novella series, and fan fiction! A lot of writing happens for audio dramas now too, which is a format I have come to love for story telling. I have had one short story published…for now. But if you are interested in hearing some of my writing, check out Once Upon a Monster of the Week!
I fell in love with audio dramas back around the time We’re Alive was getting into it’s second season. I fell in love with the idea of experiencing worlds around me in a way that could help me escape from the real world.
Since then I’ve actually become a moderator for the We’re Alive Discord! And worked on creating my own audio dramas. As of Summer 2022 only one has been released (OUAMOTW) but so many to follow!

As a Podcaster
I started my first podcast in 2017 with a mic that I was gifted and my Macbook with garageband. That podcast – Judging Book Covers Podcast – is still going strong today! It has morphed over the years as two of the best book co-hosts have come to join the podcast permanently! Since then I have started and retired several other podcasts that are there: Fableulous Retellings, Handbook Podcast, and Minds at Yeerk — all of which I am so glad I helped create!
Since then, I have moved more and more behind the mic. Working on audio dramas, running social media — these are things I actually enjoy! I joined Haunted Griffin Entertainment as a show creator and my podcast hosting days are mostly over! My audio drama days? Just beginning!
It doesn’t happen as often as I like, but I do crochet, knit, cross stitch, and am learning to make yarn wigs! I have an instagram dedicated to these projects, which you can find here!
