I’m Andrea, and I write stuff. I’m also a fiction editor, yoga teacher, and professional introvert. I balance all this with the help of chocolate, peanut butter straight out of the jar, and plenty of irony. Not to be mistaken for ironing. I don’t do any of that.
A long time ago, I grew up in Southern California but now call Tulsa, Oklahoma home, where I live with my partner and a million houseplants. Favorite pastimes include starting knitting projects, making vegetable soup, and lamenting the existential qualities of housework.

My 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.
Fun fact: I’m the niece of Eleanor and Francis Coppola! And I’m especially thankful for their inspiration and encouragement. But please don’t tell them I’ve never seen The Godfather.
