I'm a researcher, creative writer, and freelance editor. Right now, I'm preparing to move to Japan for a teaching role! I’ve got a couple of chapters in books, a couple of journal articles, a couple of short stories. I’ve also got a couple of books in the works for myself and for clients. I have degrees in journalism, education, and creative writing. My PhD was on the representation of child abuse in children’s literature, focusing on Harry Potter, The Hunger Games, and The Hunchback Assignments as case studies. I also do the occasional ghostwriting commission for private clients.
