Once, a kid asked me: What kind of person are you? 

I don’t know how to answer that question.

But I can tell you that I am a writer and critic living in the mountains of New Mexico. I have a husband named Johnny and two dogs named Layla and Covington. We live in an Earthship where the pine forest intersects the desert.

My recent work has appeared in Literary Hub, Longreads, The Rumpus, Adroit Journal, The Los Angeles Review of Books, Entropy, Rain Taxi, and Tupelo Quarterly, among others. Before that I wrote a quaint column for small Colorado newspaper, and a drug column for Boulder Weekly, where I also freelanced as a features and arts & culture journalist.

I’m currently working on two books: a collection of essays and criticism, and a philosophically minded memoir.

Before becoming a writer I was: a diner waitress, a homeless shelter cook, a cupcake baker, a caretaker of horses, a carpenter’s apprentice, a nonprofit manager, a potter, an artist’s assistant, a grocery store clerk, and a library staffer.

Thanks for visiting 🙂
