I write stories about things like desert breezes who become goddesses in ancient Sumer, startup co-founders confronting a literal ghost in a machine, and lonely people who find love and enlightenment through EEG machines. My stories have been published in anthologies from Three Drops Press, Cleis, and in Elohi Gadugi.
In addition to writing, my other passion is divination. I organize the Westside Diviners meetup in Portland, Oregon. I am particularly interested in astrology, Tarot, and the runes as tools for promoting personal growth.
In a past life, I was founder and editor of Paper Tape Magazine. I have an MFA in creative writing from Goddard College where I wrote a novel about the human consequences of the startup crash of 2000 and a thesis on Rilke's German poetry in translation. While at Goddard, I also served as an editor for The Pitkin Review.
I currently live in Portland, Oregon and pine for my native New England. When I'm not writing stories or swearing at the runes, I am learning to play the mandolin and pointing my camera at the sky looking for evidence that the sun came out today.
