writes speculative short fiction


"It’s a strange and compelling read, full of a mix of desires, grim and otherwise, pushing toward an ending full of life but also of transformation and dissolution."

Charles Payseur, Quick Sip Reviews, on "Art, and Wit, and Changing"

"I adore this sequel to the tale of Hansel and Gretel, and as dark and intense as this story is, it offers the hope of finding new ways to live our lives in the shadow of a troubled past."

Maria Haskins, Strange Horizons, on "Gingerbread"

"An utterly beautiful flash piece of horror and hope, torment and escape, set in a far-future science-fiction/fantasy world."

Vanessa Fogg on "A Lady of Ganymede, a Sparrow of Io"

"[A] fantastic tale and one that I highly recommend."

Tara Grimravn, Tangent Online, on "Secret Keepers"
