Poet, Author, Curmudgeon.
I know it is an authorial stereotype to say that one has been writing as long as they can remember, but stereotypes get reinforced for a reason. Most of my earliest memories don’t center around friends or family, but escaping to read or write in nature.
I have always been drawn to poetry and fiction, though I also wrote and produced a play in elementary school. I’ve been a contributor and editor for literary magazines since high school.
I have contributed poetry, short stories and erotic fiction to a variety of indie zines (back when that was a thing) and LGBTQ publications under several pseudonyms while defining my authorial voice and honing in on a clear and definitive style. I have successfully completed NaNoWriMo every year since 2009.
I’ve lived in New England my entire life, and the ocean has always fed my creative spirit, though I am thrilled by travel in order to experience different cultures.
I have been a Fiber Artist specializing in quilting and embroidery for over 25 years, and in the last several years have branched into dyeing fabric and yarn, and became a big fan of knitting, which is far more portable.
My husband and I were married in the summer of 2014 and we are kept by two fantastic felines.
I will be receiving my Bachelor of Arts in Creative Writing and English in December of 2020. My autobiographical poetry collection Refraction Cycle will be published in 2020, and Synchronicity, an LGBTQ novel, is due in 2021.
