JC grew up in Michigan, playing on railroad tracks and swimming all summer. After college (hey, MSU!) she moved to Oklahoma City and worked for several years as a journalist. She continued her slow migration west with a move to Denver, where she lives today with her husband, two young boys, and senior tabby. She might miss the lakes in Michigan, but those mountain views are hard to beat.

In 2019, she was chosen as a mentee for Pitch Wars, and her spectacular mentors Carrie S. Allen and Sabrina Lotfi helped her edit and polish her novel Being Mary Bennet. (Was it stressful? Oh my god, yes. But so worth it.)

Today, she's represented by Amy Bishop of Dystel, Goderich & Bourret. Being Mary Bennet is her debut novel and released March 15, 2022 with HarperTeen.
