About Me

*special thanks to Sharon Gutowski for the photo
I am an Aerospace Engineer by day and a writer of YA and MG science fiction and fantasy by night. I love reading YA and MG books. Some of my favorites include Ender's Game, Harry Potter, The Hunger Games, and The Secrets of the Immortal Nicholas Flamel, The Illuminae Files, Mrs. Smith's Spy School for Girls, and on and on.

In my free time I'm a bit of a TV and movie junkie. I love pretty much all things science fiction, fantasy, and paranormal. I'm a huge Twitter and Facebook addict. And generally I enjoy being a giant nerd, which I think is part of the job description for a Rocket Scientist. I volunteer a lot for the Society of Women Engineers and am a champion for Women in STEM. I mentor an all girls FIRST robotics team. I love to go to comic cons and cosplay! Some of my favorite costumes are Rey from Star Wars and Speedy from Arrow. I love meeting new people and interacting with them both in real life and online, so don't hesitate to leave a comment on the blog or hit me up on twitter.

I currently live in Missouri with my husband, my son, and my dog Rogue (after the X-Men character not Star Wars).
