52 Weeks to Publication

Welcome! I’m so glad you’re here! Join me, a debut narrative nonfiction author, in a week by week behind the scenes look at traditional publication. I have no idea what to expect, but as it happens, you’ll see it with me.

I’ll be sharing insights and inspiration throughout the year that I’ve gained from the incredible group of women I’ve been writing about: The Tennessee State Tigerbelles. More on the story here.

Special thanks to the amazing Louisa Bertman for the illustrated profile image!
