Hi, I'm Andrea.

I'm a writer, editor, and habitual daydreamer with more than a decade of experience in publishing. I spent the past nine years as an editor at American Girl where I specialized in creating nonfiction content that empowered girls to explore their creative potential. I also wrote an award-winning children’s book called Spark: A Guide to Ignite the Creativity Inside You.

Today I’m a full-time freelancer with an ever-changing list of editorial projects for children and adult readers. One of my favorite roles is being the managing editor (plus contributing writer and podcast co-host) at The Art of Simple. I’m also at work on my next two middle-grade books (coming in 2020). My belief in the power of words and images guides the content I create each day, whoever my reader may be. Want to get in touch? Drop me a line at
