Good stories inspire us by asking powerful questions.
What in ourselves and our world is worth fighting for?
What is worth saving?
Join me as worlds not too different from our own collapse into chaos, leaving behind raw truths that bring meaning and hope to this impossible, miraculous, desperately luminous thing we call life.
I am fat, queer, disabled, neurodivergent, mentally ill, kinky, and nonbinary.
I am a single mom, a caregiver to elderly and disabled animals, a vegan cheese-maker, and a back-woods bootlegger.
I am friendly and loyal and generous, with a sense of humor too dark for most people.
I am all of these things, but none of them define me.
I'm all about connecting with other writers, poets, and creators.
I love to trade feedback, share perspectives and lived experiences, geek out about craft, brainstorm, patch plot holes, and squee about my the heroes and worlds my friends are building and smashing.
