Hello! I write fiction. I am represented by Sarah LaPolla of Bradford Literary Agency.

In other work, I am a freelance graphic designer, specializing in author websites (I’m the designer behind Manuscript Wish List and PitchWars). Most recently, I started Backlog magazine, a magazine for writers and other animals. I live in the foggy wastelands of the San Francisco Bay Area with my family.

My non-fiction essays have been featured on Maria Shriver’s Shriver Report and Architects of Change website, and in the anthology, Nothing But The Truth So Help Me God: 73 Women on Life’s Transitions (Nothing But the Truth Press, 2014). In addition, I have been a sports writer covering Spanish football for online sports sites.


Some Sierra Facts:
