About Me

Born and raised in the rainy streets of Seattle, I spent my fair share of time inside, staring out rain-streaked windows and writing novels.  I used to start one novel after another, sometimes working on several different novels at the same time.

In college I had the opportunity of being on the editorial board of Highline Community College’s annual publication, Arcturus.  That was where I published my first short stories, and really started to work on my craft.

I started writing NaNoWriMo novels in 2010 and my writing life changed dramatically. I had written many novels prior to doing NaNoWriMo, but afterward I realized that I could actually write a novel, I could finish one.
When my first child came along, things changed a lot for me, but I still worked on my craft. Life has been interesting since then. I now have two beautiful daughters, and my life is full of dirty diapers, tickle fights, and short bouts of writing at every opportunity I get.


  1. Enjoyed hearing about Tipson at the Spokane Writes anthology introduction. It was a very fun story! Best wishes as you continue your writing journey.
