Writing

Andrea’s writing pushes the margins of societal norms, challenging traditionally accepted views of socioeconomic status, ethics, morality, religion, gender, and identity, using the tools of candor and humor. She is a graduate of UCLA Extension Writers’ Program and was a 2014/15 scholar.

She is hard at work on her memoir, a coming of age journey of identity and redemption amidst an evangelical teen marriage. She writes short stories and essays.

Her work has been published in Role Reboot, SeeingBeauty.com, Bindercon.com, ESME, Winter Tangerine Summer Workshop Anthology, and Storia, as well as many client websites (as a ghost).

A graduate of UCLA Extension, she received the Creative Nonfiction Writing Certificate (with distinction) and is a 2014/2015 UCLA X Writers’ Program Scholar.

She also currently serves as the Brand Director for the literary non-profit,  Out of the Binders, Inc. – a non-profit conference and community for women and gender variant writers.

In addition, she was a Judge on the short stories contest site MashStories.com
