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 37 antique typewriters. My novella A Day in Deep Freeze was published by Aqueduct Press. My science fiction play “The Other Two Men” was on the Bradbury Award Suggested Reading list and was produced at The Players’ Ring in Portsmouth, NH last Summer. 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.
