Welcome to my world! Growing up, my closest friends always called me “Lo.” That’s why I playfully refer to my world as the “Lo Life.” Lo Life refers to living my best, creative life, where the arts come first. I am an author first and foremost…but also a columnist, screenwriter, and content creator. I even dabble in the acting world when life starts feeling a little mundane. I both practice and promote the arts. I believe in producing wonderful things and helping others in this realm build the platforms that help them to do the same!
I was born in Asheville, NC, which is the artistic Mecca of The South. I now live in one of the most aesthetically pleasing places in the USA, Charleston, SC. I feel inspired everyday by the history, hanging moss, and undeniable heat here in The LowCountry.
I was first published in 2017 by Pen Name Publishing, when my novel Tobacco Sun was picked up. I was also published in a few literary anthologies, and online forums that year. In 2019 I was awarded my own column in Skirt Magazine, and landed my first professional acting roles. I started my own creative marketing company prior to all of this in 2015, and still take on select clients, where I specialize in branding, image, blogging, social media, video/on-air scripting, and more. I also coach other authors, actors, artisans, and aspiring influencers when I am not working on my own projects!
Finally, I launched The Yellow Bird Press, a boutique publishing company in 2020. My goal with this venture is to find amazing stories that already have wings, then help them to fly. Visit http://www.theyellowbirdpress.com andcheck it out!
