Writer Bio

I grew up near Nashville, Tennessee, but, of late, find myself living in London. Presently, I'm at work on a near-future novel set in Korea that concerns love, magic, revolution, and K-pop. My previous work has appeared or is forthcoming in Strange Horizons, Fiction Weekly, the Interfictions Annex, and the second volume of Dark Heart, an anthology of dark fairy tales put out by Little Bird Publishing. Also, I'm a graduate of the 2012 Clarion Writer’ Workshop at UCSD and have an MFA in fiction from the University of Mississippi. Here are some other things about me. I’m a quarter Scandinavian. Also a feminist. I never put honey in my tea unless I am sick and then usually I also put a fistful of ginger because ginger is awesome. My sister and I more or less defeated The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past over the course of one rental weekend. I have seen every episode of Buffy the Vampire Slayer at least four times. I love cooking, particularly pancakes, muffins, and curries. If I eat gluten, my stomach frowns. My parents took me to see Return of the Jedi when I was three. I am told that during the credits I cried. I cried a lot as a child. Sometimes people call me pomegranate. I will not tell you why.
