I write middle-grade fiction across genres. My debut novel, GET A GRIP, VIVY COHEN, will be published by Dial Books for Young Readers (Penguin Random House) in spring 2020. I am represented by Jennifer Udden of Barry Goldblatt Literary.
In 2015, I earned my PhD in History from the University of California, Los Angeles, where I've taught in the History and Gender Studies departments. I”m alway happy to talk about the history of women, medicine, and other history geek topics. You can find my academic work in Gender & History and Great Plains Quarterly.
Currently I live in Santa Barbara, California with my husband Neil and our goofy orange cat. I have a longstanding involvement in the disability rights and neurodiversity movements. I serve as chairperson of the Association for Autistic Community.
