Cold Coffee Chronicles

Poetry, fiction, children’s stories, and more


Born 3 days after Christmas – I’m a Capricorn. I’m also a twin mom and a wife. We proudly possess a dachshund, catahoula and an orange tabby cat. I’m an avid Colts fan, Louise Erdrich is my favorite female writer, and I’m a Grateful Dead lover.

I graduated from Indiana University in 2012 with a degree in Creative Writing. I’ve written for regional publications like: the Indiana Daily Student, Nuvo, and Indymojo music blog.

In spring 2022, I resigned from my corporate job in logistics and sales. I’d been with the company for 7.5 years and had moved into full time management. Stepping away to raise my kids has allowed me time (lol yeah right) to dive into my love for writing again.

If you read this far, thanks and hope you love what you see!

About Me

An English diarist and naval administrator. I served as administrator of the Royal Navy and Member of Parliament. I had no maritime experience, but I rose to be the Chief Secretary to the Admiralty under both King Charles II and King James II through patronage, diligence, and my talent for administration.
