I love dressing up as a pirate with a mustache. I also recently gained my motorcycle endorsement. Just so you know. Maybe we can be friends and ride our motorcycles together while wearing eye patches.

Since I care far too much about grammar, I design English language curriculum for an online education company. This has set me on a mission to help everyone understand the difference between possessive pronouns and possessive adjectives. If that doesn’t bring about world peace, nothing will.

During my undergrad, I worked as literary editor on Spindrift and graduated with a B.A. in Culture, Literature, and the Arts. My first chapbook, Sagebrush and Cedar, was released shortly after. I have published short fiction in Spartan and am working on the final draft of a novel, The Gods of Kittitas County, addressing a young woman’s loss of faith and the difficult choices she must make in her violent, fundamentalist community. My next novel, The Life Cycle of Stars, explores the Armenian genocide of 1915 and its ongoing impact today.

I live in a Seattle suburb with my husband and two cats where I am a full-time migraine warrior. All four of us dream of a tiny home in the woods with a wall of built-in bookshelves.
