From 2012-2017, I was a staff ghostwriter at Hearts Collective, a book packaging company specializing in genre fiction. At Hearts Collective, I wrote over 20 full-length titles under the pen name Colleen Masters (among others), several of which broke into the Amazon Top 10 and Top 100 bestseller lists. My books with HC have sold over 300,000 copies to date.
In 2017, I ghostwrote Surrender, by Jessica Zampieri. This memoir tells the story of Jessica's emergency liver transplant at the age of 28 and her subsequent work as an advocate for organ donation. Utilizing interviews, primary documents, and additional research, I helped Jessica share her story of survival and self love with the world.

FOUNDER — 2014-PRESENT

Lady Parts began as a Tumblr blog, where I would excerpt the most hilariously heinous online casting calls I came across every day (ex. "Seeking: Female to lay face down in a pool of fake blood for two days. Unpaid.") Since 2014, I have released an original comedic digital series based on the blog and collaborated with other companies to create female-driven Web & video content. Below are just a few of of the stories written about Lady Parts:
