I’m always open to writing about children’s books, science fiction and fantasy, horror, bookish topics, disability, parenting, and more. If you’re looking for a writer and think I might be a good fit, feel free to email me at

I cover children’s books for Book Riot, where I work as a contributing editor and write their twice-weekly children’s book newsletter—The Kids Are All Right. I’m also the creator of Baby Librarians, a children’s book review website and bookstagram. In addition to Book Riot, my pieces have appeared in BuzzFeed News, School Library Journal, Parents, The Lily, and more. I’m the former Books newsletter editor for BuzzFeed News.
