|I'm currently writing...||
I am currently editing a contemporary middle grade novel. It’s about a sister and brother who sneak off to Washington D.C. to try to meet President Obama.
I have 3 CPs right now (early March) but expect that I’ll be free to exchange again in April or early May, so if anyone is looking for a CP around then, please message me.
My manuscripts are around 30K, and though I’ve critiqued friends’ manuscripts of 100K+ in the past, this time I’d prefer to keep it under 70K.
|Are you pursuing publication?|
|What I want in an awesome Critique Partner||
Deep critique. I am experienced with critiquing.
|The type of structure you like|
|How often can you give & receive feedback?|
|What is your writing experience?||
I am unpublished, but seeking publication. I’ve written nine novels and am currently working on my tenth.
|My writing influences are...||
Any MG novel that tugs at the heartstrings. “When You Reach Me” by Rebecca Stead and “Rules” by Cynthia Lord are two favorites. I also love MG humor such as “Diary of a Wimpy Kid”
|Books I enjoy reading||
I love middle grade, first and foremost. I do enjoy adult and young adult books, but MG is where my heart is.

|More About Me||
I’m a 20-something in the Washington D.C. area. I work with kids, which helps give me the middle grade perspective. Besides writing and reading, I enjoy playing video games, going to concerts, taking long walks, and watching a small amount of TV. My favorite show right now is Revenge.
