When she's not writing, she can be found coaching gymnastics, reading in the corner of a coffeeshop, or headlining concerts in her living room. Her debut novel, WHAT YOU LEFT ME is out now from Sourcebooks Fire. Her second novel, WHEN THE LIGHT WENT OUT, will be out in summer of 2019. She is represented by Taylor Haggerty of Root Literary.
