She wrote and designed storylines, quests, and locations for G5's game Survivors: The Quest for a solid two years running, and she and her team are responsible for the narrative and writing in Redemption Games' recent release, Sweet Escapes. Her current work includes the interactive novel app Tiles & Tales, which Brunette Games is working on with Helsinki-based studio Kuuhubb, a mystery genre-focused app called Crime Stories for Polish studio Cherrypick Games, and unannounced projects for U.S.-based Jam City. Her creative management experience includes leading teams of both staff and freelancers at Crosscut and Big Fish Games. She was visiting professor of game design at Webster University for the 2017-18 school year and is a frequent speaker at industry conferences as well as schools, non-profits, and libraries.  All three books in her bestselling Dreamslippers Series have won indieBRAG medallions, and the second book was a finalist for the Nancy Pearl Book Award and nominated for a RONE Award. Additionally, she has a long list of bylines in her former life as a journalist, her work appearing in the Seattle Post-Intelligencer, Seattle Woman, Poets & Writers, and elsewhere.
