I am a writing student at the Iowa Writers Workshop, a master’s program in eastern Iowa. As a lifelong Californian, I’m getting to know the meaning of cold. The snow is pretty, I admit… when I’m not shivering too much to speak.

When I’m not writing, I like to make jewelry, play computer games, read, spend time with my fiance, and tend to my two pet rats, Wentworth and Sullivan (who would like you to know that I don’t feed them enough—and by “don’t feed them enough,” they mean that I have not yet turned into a full-time food dispenser, though they have high hopes.)

I’ve been lucky enough to publish some fiction, which can be found in various books and magazines, and sometimes even online. To learn more about my work, check out my website.

I hope you enjoy my ficlets!
