Writer Bio

I am an alumna of the Bread Loaf Young Writers’ Conference (now the New England Young Writers' Conference) and a member of Codex Writers’ Group. I have completed an apprenticeship to an antiquarian book dealer. I now live in New England with 33 antique typewriters and I'm a member of Broad Universe, the Carl Brandon Society, the Dramatists’ Guild of America, the National Writers’ Union, the New England Science Fiction Association, the New Hampshire Writers’ Project, and the Outer Alliance. My novella A Day in Deep Freeze was published by Aqueduct Press last year. My science fiction play “The Other Two Men” will be performed by The Players’ Ring in Portsmouth, NH this July. My short stories have appeared in Black Denim Lit, Expanded Horizons, Four Star Stories, Kaleidotrope, and in the anthology Things We Are Not: An M-Brane SF Magazine Queer Science Fiction Anthology.
