I'm a writer and editor living in Minneapolis, Minnesota. My books include a chapbook of poems, Fun & Games, published by Finishing Line Press; two series of nonfiction books for young readers written for Full Tilt Press; and a literary mystery, The Girl in Duluth, published under the name Sigrid Brown in 2022. The Girl in Duluth won a Midwest Book Award from the Midwest Independent Publishers Association and my novel manuscript Annika Rose won the 2022 Women's Prose Prize from Red Hen Press and will be published by Red Hen in the spring of 2024. My work has been reviewed by Publishers Weekly, Portland Book Review, School Library Journal, and Booklist.
I offer feedback, editing, and proofreading through the Loft Literary Center in Minneapolis.
