More about me

I am a PhD student, Nutella enthusiast, and author of four YA novels from Henry Holt Children’s: FIRST & THEN (2015), THIS ADVENTURE ENDS (2016), FOOLISH HEARTS (2017), and FAMOUS IN A SMALL TOWN (2019).

I started vlogging on Youtube in 2010, when I created my personal channel elmify. I also co-created the life skills channel How to Adult in 2014 with fellow YA writer T. Michael Martin, and co-hosted videos on this channel from 2014-2016.

I began writing as a kid, and started my debut novel FIRST & THEN when I was in high school. I finished FIRST & THEN in college, and signed with my literary agency, Dunham Literary, in 2013— the same summer I started a graduate program in biomedical research. Five years later, I am still working on my PhD, and am thrilled to have published four novels for YA readers.

I'm so excited to share my books with you! Thank you for stopping by!
