As a kid, I dreamed of having my own library, with a floor-to-ceiling ladder. As an adult, I have an empty room and a pile of book boxes in the corner. But the room has potential, and I have a plan. Being a writer is like that; you need potential, but you also need a road map. Evolved Publishing is both part of my career plan, and a living dream for me. I love helping other writers achieve their dreams, by shaping a manuscript until it starts breathing on its own.
I spent the first part of my career in special education before realizing that writing was more than just a hobby. While taking my MA in creative writing at Lancaster University (UK), I was introduced to the world of creative nonfiction, and I’ve been in love ever since.
Sleet magazine recently published an excerpt from my creative fiction novel-in-progress, Letters to Catherine. I’ve also had work published in Stone Highway Review and the Beltane Papers. Sometimes, I teach creative writing at the Nepean Creative Arts Centre, and at Algonquin College in Ottawa, Canada. My debut novel, Jellicle Girl, was published by Evolved Publishing on August 15, 2012. They released my second novel, Weight of Earth, on May 20, 2013.
When I grow up, I want to be a baby elephant whisperer in Kenya.

As an editor, I appreciate stories with pace and humor—and no dangling participles. Genres of particular interest include nature writing, creative nonfiction, speculative fiction, and books for children & young adults. I earned my MFA from Vermont College of Fine Arts, and I teach at New Hampshire Institute of Art.

I wrote my first story when I was eight years old. Since then, I’m almost always found at the intersection of language and imagination. I have an MFA in fiction from Pacific University and a certificate in copyediting from UCSD. I’ve worked as an editor for several literary magazines, including WORK and Silk Road Literary Journal.
My literary interests are broad, ranging from science fiction and fantasy to westerns, to historical and hyper-literary fiction. Some of my favorite authors are Toni Morrison, Cormac McCarthy, Orhan Pamuk, Jaan Kross, Margaret Atwood, Iain Banks, Umberto Eco, Molly Gloss, J R R Tolkien, and Kurt Vonnegut.
When I’m not writing and editing, I love to travel and learn languages — I’m fluent in Estonian and have studied French, Russian, German, Spanish, and Welsh. I live in Portland, Oregon.
