Welcome to my site! I’m an author, a magazine writer, and an enthusiastic commenter on feminism, race, weird natural cures, and other random stuff, in addition to being one meticulous, pain-in-the neck, send it back 1,000 times editor. I’ve edited and contributed work to two books, and am in the process of trying to commit to one voice for my work-in-progress novel.

Stay tuned as we populate it with ideas and news about my writing. Please contact me if you have anything specific you’d like to see.
