inspired by travel, nature, food, oral histories, and queer culture

I have a bad case of wanderlust, yet return time and again to the sea. Raised outside Boston, I've lived in New, York, San Francisco, and the Hudson Valley.

In my writing, I am drawn to themes of family, friendship, and resilience, difficult characters and strong women. My work shines a light on LGBTQ histories, cultures, and lived experiences, with a focus on fostering resilience and celebrating queer communities.

Whether writing for a Young Adult or Adult audience, I tackle social justice themes and include diverse characters in my writing, because the world we live in is complex, intersectional, and imperfect. I'm inspired by oral histories, queer culture, nature, and food – I used to cook professionally.

I'm presently querying for MY LIFE WITHOUT YOU (YA) and working on revisions to a novel that follows one family's search for their daughter, who went missing on gap year. Find a complete publication history, browse travel writing clips, or get in touch.
