She is a sci-fi spinster whose frightful existence is probably some random number generated. When she isn’t collecting teeth and other biohazards, she’s writing. Though, she has shared words for very few.
This year, she has been published in Literary Orphans, Antipodean Sci Fi, Vending Machine Press, and others. Her writing tends to gravitate towards genres speculative or slipstream in nature, and generally takes on forms as short as her tolerance for unkindness.

She can be found swooping around the neighborhood in a blanket cape and red lipstick, or on her nifty little website. She does both for the sake of kindness, in any capacity.
