Writer Bio

Clarion 2013. Currently growing a lot of nightshades in Minneapolis/St. Paul.

Writing Style

I like to find an emotion and make people feel it as hard as I can. I like fannish protagonists and xenolinguistics. I like kids dealing with hard life stuff they don't have words for yet, and also dealing with the inevitable [insert speculative fiction element here, ideally something to do with unspeakable body/mind horror]. Every story contains at least one reference to Elisabeth Sladen.

Writing Goal

Write 1000 words of either outline or filling in the outline each day for my work-for-hire project. Write 100 words of fanfic or fun things on days when the prospect of the work-for-hire project makes me want to scream.

Fundraising Goal


writing goal:
30000 words written
