I am a college student, attending a small, classical, Orthodox school in the Houston area. Many of my professors are published authors.

I am a former student of the Young Writers Workshop. Through this incredible program, I had the opportunity to receive personal instruction and insight from fellow enthusiastic young writers as well as published authors, including Brett Harris (Do Hard Things, Start Here), Kara Swanson (Dust, The Girl Who Could See), and Jaquelle Crowe (This Changes Everything).

I have also met and counseled with author S. D. Smith, author of the acclaimed Green Ember series. I have beta read three of Smith’s books.
