I've loved reading and writing since I was a child. At age nine I wrote a short story collection titled, "My Book of Gory Deaths" by "the 2nd Agatha Christie." Such a humble kid.
As an adult, the stories I write include siblings and found-family, with themes of self-acceptance, forgiveness, and bravery in the face of terrible odds. The hard things.
When I'm not writing or working, I spend time with my partner and two small kids, read endless books, play old-time banjo, bake bread, and get punched in the head (box).
My pronouns are she/her, and they/them are fine too. I am actively looking for representation.
