Bio

Hi, friends! I am an omnivorous reader with a preference for difficult heroines, flawed heroes, and unfrilly writing. In college, I double-majored in English and Medieval Studies. To fund my impulse book-buying habit and the occasional food item, I work as an editorial assistant in Macmillan Children's Publishing Group. Ask me about Pennsylvania.

Favorite Books

My longtime favorites include Lemony Snicket's A Series of Unfortunate Events, Prep by Curtis Sittenfeld, Animal Farm by George Orwell, and The Sun Also Rises by Ernest Hemingway. Recent loves are Blood Red Snow White by Marcus Sedgwick and Maggie Stiefvater's Raven Cycle.

Favorite Quotes
