About Me

I’ve authored, edited, marketed and promoted two self-published novels since 2015. My first book, “Reclaiming Konia: A Tale of Love, Loss and the Armenian Genocide” was a rite of passage I wrote on behalf of my Armenian ancestors. I planned a book tour that encompassed speaking engagements at Abril Books in Glendale, Calif. and events on the East Coast, including the Armenian Museum of America in Watertown, Mass.

 

My second book, “Fuchsia Parade: One Woman’s Quest for Sex, Love & Redemption,” won multiple awards in 2018 and 2019, including the National Indie Excellence Award, for its raw and candid look at one woman's quest to reclaim herself after being sexually violated as a child.

Gratitude Happens” is my third novel, complete at 75,000 words, and I am seeking a literary agent for this and future works. I plan to soon revisit writing my fourth book that I began in 2016, “Her Royal Majesty & the Hunt for the Matriarchal Clan,” a fantasy coming-of-age story.

 

I work full time as a B2B copywriter and editor, using my prior background in sales and my Executive MBA from NJIT to inform insightful copy that resonates with clients.  

 

A natural orator, speaker and performer, I have performed book readings, speeches, and comedic shows. 

I live in Fayetteville, Arkansas with my family and I am an exuberant dog mom who loves hiking and cooking.
