About me

By day, I’m an editor at an advertising agency; by night (or at 5 in the morning, or during kid swim lessons, or while taking a walk)—a writer of YA novels. Always, I’m a musical theatre nerd, a foodie, and a believer in the power of kindness.


Kindness is like dominoes: one kind act can set off a chain of events. I created the website below to celebrate all the ways people can choose to be kind—be it through letters, books, or food, to family and friends, neighbors, or strangers. And because I’m a sucker for quirky national holidays (with the name Brie, you know I celebrate National Cheese Lover’s Day), there’s even a calendar with ideas for good deeds to do 365 days of the year.


Paper art is my jam—check out some of my work.

Writing kudos

“I suspect that what you’ve developed over your years of writing is voice.  Apart from the craft items that you’ve mastered (dialog, plot, pacing, etc.) your voice is distinctive and strong and that’s so crucial to a great story.”
—Kathryn Erskine, 2011, following the Highlights Foundation Writers Workshop at Chautauqua
