Hello and thank you for stopping by! I’m an editor at Penguin Random House and writer. I’m passionate about books and story and how they encourage and change people’s lives. I love going on as many adventures around the world as I can. My work has been featured in Christ & Pop Culture Magazine, Beloved Women, and Ekstasis Magazine (you can see publications and book contributions here).

You may also remember my previous blogs, Books and Beverages and She Laughs With Dignity. In October 2017, I combined the two. For more details on why the change and why there are a total of zero comments on blog posts prior to Fall of 2017, here’s the post that explains the blog shift.

For previous book reviews, feel free to check out my Goodreads page. They’re all safely stored there. Just note any reviews prior to 2014-ish may have been during my “everyone gets 5 stars!!” stage. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

I’m also a big fan of Instagram (follow me here). If you love Bookstores and Libraries (and tea!), don’t miss the account dedicated to both here!
