Participates in 25 items

My passion is connecting people to stories, information and resources to inform and enrich their lives. I work as a teen librarian at a 23-library system in the Pacific Northwest and am a member of our Student Success Team. I encourage teens and tweens to explore STEM topics including robotics and coding and find themselves in books. I led the team that developed two digital escape rooms as part of our Summer Reading program. 

I've presented at national and regional science fiction/fantasy conventions on graphic novels and the ways readers interact with speculative fiction and at regional library conferences on STEM in the library and supporting intellectual freedom. As treasurer of the nonprofit group Broad Universe, I support female-identifying and non-binary writers, editors and publishers in the speculative fiction genres. 

Before becoming a librarian, I worked as a newspaper journalist, covering crime, education and the environment. I still publish in VOYA and Library Journal, most recently Movers and Shakers profiles. 

I also write for short speculative fiction markets. Find my stories "Mothers and Daughters" Abyss and Apex (October 2019,) “Cranes’ Return” in Tales of the Sunrise Lands, an Anthology of Japanese Fantasy (2017) at Guardbridge Books.

I will talk anywhere, anytime about books, the appeal of graphic novels and genre fiction, the information and reading needs of teens and tweens, the craft of writing, research skills, digital and information literacy, STEM in the library, and intellectual freedom. I'm always looking for my next challenge.
