About Me

I'm a writer, editor, and graphic designer living in St. Louis, Missouri. My first novel, DETOURS, is available from Bold Strokes Books. A second novel, the YA fantasy THE UNWANTED, is forthcoming.

Why do you write?

I love finding things—facts, memories, bits of pocket lint—that make me think about something in a different or (to me, at least) unexpected way. The concept of defining home recurs a lot in my writing too.

Any favorite authors? Books?

Favorite books: The Great Gatsby, Sense and Sensibility, Mrs. Dalloway, The Hours, and way too many more to list here. Favorite authors also include the ones I know personally who have given me so much encouragement and feedback: Timothy Lambert, Becky Cochrane, Greg Herren, Rob Byrnes, 'Nathan Burgoine, and Alex Chee, among so many others.
