I hold an MFA in Creative Writing from USM’s Stonecoast program and a M.S. in Microbiology from the University of Massachusetts at Amherst. I have published over two dozen stories in magazines such as Black Static, Interzone, Electric Velocipede, and Farrago’s Wainscot. My first story collection, Uncommon Miracles, is forthcoming from PS Publishing.
I like standing desks, dark, almost-bitter chocolate, and friends I can’t remember living without. I like how memories are mutable stories you tell and retell yourself. I have the same short hair I wore as a girl and the same brown-hazel eyes as my brother, my mother, and my youngest child, though only my mother’s eyelashes are as short as mine.
This is also me. I live in a small town in New England with my family and a menagerie of variously sized animals. Some days I work as an IT Business Analyst, trying to place words around what will eventually become bits of compiled code. Computer people are fascinating. They build these amazing virtual frameworks, like the one I’m using to publish these words. They understand when you get awkward and “babbley” and wander from the seemingly obvious path.
When not translating technical ideas into words, much of my attention is taken up with my own darkly weird fictions and the people I love. If you want to hear me speak, I hope you read my stories. If you want to hear my voice, feel free to listen to my podcasting adventures as a reader for the Small Beer Press Podcast, StarShipSofa, and various other audio magazines.
