I'm a farm girl transplanted to Chicago by marriage working as a freelance writer and editor by day and writing young adult novels in the off hours. I graduated with a BA in English from Purdue University in 2004. When I'm not working at the day-job, reading, or writing, I'm probably engrossed in something sporty or staring into the timeless eyes of Doctor Who.
