I grew up in Durham, North Carolina, where I spent twelve ascetic years as a vegetarian before discovering spicy chicken wings are, in fact, a delicacy. I’ve been a state finalist competitive pianist, a hitchhiker, a pizza connoisseur, an EMT, an expat in China and Sweden, and a science doctoral student. I’m also a bit of a snob about fancy whisky.

I write early in the morning, then spend the rest of the day trying to impress my border collie puppy and make my experiments work.

I’m represented by Holly Root and Taylor Haggerty at Root Literary, and live in Pennsylvania.
