Writer Bio

Clarion 2013. Currently warping the minds of small children 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 at least one sentence a day when I'm working or at a con, stretch goal 100 words. 1000 words if I'm not working or at a con.

Fundraising Goal


writing goal:
20000 words written
