About Me

I teach English at the Brookewood School, a Catholic girls’ school in Kensington, Maryland. I have more than ten years’ experience teaching young people to enjoy reading. My goal is to help young women and their families find books that capture their imaginations—and their hearts.

I received my Master’s degree in English literature from Oxford University in 2009. I like to spend time with my husband, who operates Electric Eloquence and designed this site. I recently completed my second novel. We’re expecting our first child in June 2011.
