I'm a recovering academic with a PhD in a ridiculously obscure area of English literature. I now write fantasy (in a wide variety of sub-genres) based on literary texts. While I remain a rural Kentuckian at heart, I currently live in the Pacific Northwest. My days are often filled with writing, editing, reading, and walking old forests.
My work offers a glimpse into diverse worlds - real and imagined - that are sometimes dark, sometimes dramatic, and sometimes a bit funny. If you like smart woman who swear, fight even when they're scared or self-conscious, and throw out sarcastic remarks like confetti, you'll like my writing.
