Writer Bio

I live in Cambridge, Massachusetts, where I work at a feminist historical archive and also write nonfiction articles for newspapers and magazines about offbeat people and/or events. My fiction has been published or will soon be published in magazines such as Nightmare, Interfictions, Interzone, and the Dark, and my first short story collection just came out in May. I like dogs, history, and crafts.

Writing Style

Gothic. Misandry. Ghosts. Something mysterious happened by the ocean, and we liked it. The decayed grandeur of pre-war Europe. Ask the spiritualist. We were girls alone in the world, and our obsession for each other burned brighter and colder than anything else. The curse lived on. "Where, where does this darkness inside of you come from, Emily?!?!?" --my mom.

Writing Goal

I pledge to write six days a week for the next six weeks, wherein "writing" is defined as at least two hours of revising per day OR 1,000 words of a new draft produced!

Fundraising Goal
