I am a writer, editor and photographer based in Corvallis, Oregon.
My short fiction has been published in Black Hare Press’s Seven Deadly Sins: Gluttony anthology, DragonSoul Press’s Fairytale Dragons anthology, Danse Macabre’s DM Du Jour and 365Tomorrows. I focus on speculative fiction with a literary bent. I am currently working on a horror novella.
I hold a BA in creative writing from Eckerd College in St. Petersburg, Florida and spent seven years as a small town newspaper reporter and PR specialist. Now I work as a legal assistant for my day job. In my free time I like to hike, do yoga, go swimming, garden and knit.
