I am the author of two award-winning short-story collections and a novel manuscript that is currently being shopped by a New York literary agent. I have also published articles in various publications including Family Circle, Writer's Digest, The Writer, Justine, Listen, CO-ED, Health and Home, Motherwords and The Los Angeles Times. My publishing company, Write On! Books, publishes anthologies of work by young writers. I am also the founder of Write On! for Literacy, a nonprofit organization that has donated 11,000 new books to underprivileged kids.
