Writer Bio

I attended Clarion in the summer of 2011. Since then, I've had stories in Apex, the anthology "Kaleidoscope" (2014, Twelfth Planet Press), and Lightspeed (Queers Destroy Science Fiction special issue, June 2015). I have a number of novels and stories published through small presses as well. In June, I attended the Center for the Study of Science Fiction's novel workshop and am going to be first-drafting that novel this summer.

Writing Style

Contemporary, casual, dialogue-focused, but I can hop into other styles for short periods. Most comfortable with contemporary fantasy, but have been known to venture into mystery, science fiction, supernatural, superhero, and other oddities.

Writing Goal

I've got two novel manuscripts that need editing done and I'd like to get them finished by the end of the write-a-thon.

Fundraising Goal

It'd be great to get a couple hundred dollars to help out Clarion students!

writing goal:
60 hours on editing
