Hello! I write stories about strange magic, strong women, and the people who fall in love with both. A nomad by nature, I’ve lived in Maryland, Nevada, France, Ireland, Chicago, and Oakland before settling back in my hometown of Reno, Nevada, in the foothills of the Sierra Nevada mountains. When I need to think out a story, I often wander the paths of the beautiful Nevada desert, where two skies are never the same. I do occasionally try this thing I heard about called “finding a hobby,” which for me involves hiking, biking, reading romance, and/or discussing Star Wars at length. When I’m not doing those things, or writing, you can find me in the graduate program of the University of Nevada, Reno, where I’m earning my MFA in fiction. Or you can find me deep in the dark forest, following a flicker of light I was told to ignore.
