In 2014, she came second in YA/MG/children's category in the the Annual Houston Writers' Guild fiction contest for a draft fantasy manuscript. She also came third in the YA/MG/children's category in the Fall Houston Writers' Guild fiction contest for Inside The Palisade. Her short story, In For A Penny, published in 2014 in the Space City 6 anthology came second runner up in the Writers Type second quarter short story contest in 2014 and her YA short story There's No Such Thing as Sleep-Skating received an Honorable Mention in the NYC Midnight Short Story Challenge 2015.

She has completed the fiction writing certificate programs at UCLA and Stanford, and is currently a student in the MFA program in Writing for Children and Young Adults at Vermont College of Fine Arts.

She has lived in the United States, the United Kingdom, and Australia, but home is wherever the family is.
