About Me

I’m a queer speculative and literary fiction writer from the U.S. but living abroad. I love spicy food and sharp flavors, feminism, dark humor, thunderstorms, dinosaurs, sea monsters, strange plants, and space.

My prose has appeared in places such as Booth, Passages North, Syntax and Salt, The Cincinnati Review, The Baltimore Review, Jellyfish Review, Split Lip, and Necessary Fiction, and is forthcoming in the food and horror anthology Sharp & Sugar Tooth: Women Up to No Good (Upper Rubber Boot, 2019). I have received nominations for Best Small Fictions, Best of the Net, and the Pushcart and was a finalist for the 2018 Smokelong Quarterly Kathy Fish Fellowship.
