I’m originally from a small town in southern Arizona, but I escaped the desert to spend twelve years in the Seattle metro area. My wife and I transplanted to Brooklyn in 2006 so I could study medieval British literature at New York University. In 2016, we relocated to northern New Jersey due to Brooklyn’s rising rents.
A fountain pen and hat fanatic, I am a member of the Sisters in Crime, the National Writers Union, PEN America, and the Authors Guild. I’m a graduate of the first-ever Golden Crown Literary Society Writing Academy program. Pronouns are she/her/hers or they/their/theirs.
