Andrea lives in Oklahoma but grew up in Southern California—and the latter will always be home in her heart. In 2016 she left a job in finance to pursue a career in anything other than working for somebody else. She has been freestyling it ever since. With age comes wisdom, or at least a few more stories to tell, and in 2018, Andrea began self-publishing quirky novels with the intention of brightening her readers’ day. When she’s not trying to get her own words onto a page, Andrea edits other people’s writing, teaches a little yoga, and starts knitting projects that sometimes get finished.
Current project: the Old School Cozy Mystery series! Join retired super-spy Delphine Lougheed for some light-hearted, low-stakes fun!
Andrea’s Beverley Green Adventures series might be best described as “GenX Chick Cozy Lit Comedy Adventure.” But until Barnes & Noble creates a category for that, just know these books are filled with laughter, lightheartedness, and yes, plenty of irony. The books follow late-bloomer Beverley as she navigates new territories in her mid-40s: a new town, a new career and a newfound appreciation of nice guys.
Days Are Beautiful and No Surprises are collections of 100, 100-word stories written in 2020 and 2022, respectively. Each collection is a thoughtful journal of sorts, as well as a tasty amuse bouche of storytelling.
