Hear Me Read!

I’m such a huge fan of Breadcrumbs Mag, where writers are challenged to get inspired by any of the pieces on the site and let this inspiration fuel their own writing. I currently have three pieces on Breadcrumbs and I am so pleased to be a part of this awesome “trail.”

Today I’m happy to share that I’m featured on the ninth episode of the Breadcrumbs Podcast, and I’m reading my fiction piece that’s all about dead people, and kissing, and ravioli. It sounds weird. It kind of is.

Anyway, I’m so thankful that I got to read and present my work through this new medium! Please check out the episode hereΒ and listen to some great pieces by Kim Dietz and Bob Raymonda while you’re at it.


The BookCon and New Developments

I hope May was a successful month for everyone! I’m preparing to head to the first ever BookCon in New York City this Saturday (5/31), and I couldn’t be more excited! I’ve been writing about BookCon on BiblioSmiles a bit (check out my post on “Some Poor Book Swap / Speed Date Choices” here), and I can’t wait to visit with my friends and share our experiences on the blog, our Twitter, and Instagram accounts.

Another exciting event in my life: I’ll be moving into Manhattan for the month of June! I’m hoping that this move is a good “trial run” for me, and if things start looking up on the employment front, I’d love to move officially! I’m looking forward to taking advantage of the amazing writing community of NYC, and I hope to attend events and maybe a workshop or two.Β 

Thanks for stopping by my blog! I’d love to hear about any of your writing news. Are you attending BookCon tomorrow?

Call For Submissions!

BiblioSmiles Header


I am the proud editor (and a contributing writer) of BiblioSmiles, which is essentially the reading-focused blog of my dreams. Started in February of 2014, BiblioSmiles is a place for book lovers to share book reviews, personal essays, humor pieces, and anything which celebrates a life of reading. We also recently started a series called “Anatomy of a Bookshelf,” where contributors share photos and thoughts about their bookshelves. (You can learn so much from someone’s bookshelf, you know?)

I want to extend the call for submissions to all of you! I’m always looking for people who want to contribute. Β You don’t have to be a “writer” to share on BiblioSmiles… you just have to be passionate about reading.

While the best thing to do would be to check out the other kinds of posts on our page, you can also visit our Submit page to see the posts we’re looking for. Feel free to leave me any questions here, or send me an email. Happy reading!
