Writer Bio

A writer and artist living in Chicago. You can find her comics stuff in the Ladies' Night Anthology Volumes 3 and 4. One of her Clarion stories, "A Pestilence Come For Old Ma Salt," will appear in its final version in Lackington's this August!

Writing Style

Either gonzo alien sex comedy or folksy weirdness in various centuries.

Writing Goal

This summer, for part of the Write-a-thon, I'll be attending a novel retreat with friends that we call The Happy Little Comets. There, I aim to complete the outline for the novel version of a werewolf weird west story I wrote this year, as well as to work on the meta-fantasy involving characters from many disparate stories that I outlined and began drafting last year.

writing goal:
150 hours in the chair
