I’m a writer, editor, and artist, based in New Mexico and Texas. My stories and poems often focus on magic, since that’s what really happens in life, but not the kind of magic with fancy wands or perfect edges, necessarily. I’m drawn to authenticity and healing, and to pursuing the mojo of life that motors us through the challenges.
I released my first two books at the end of last year, one right after the other. Now, That’s a Trick (Finishing Line Press, 2022) is a magical realism flash fiction chapbook, and My Bones Are Love Gifts (Shanti Arts, 2022) is a collection of my poems and drawings. My stories, poems, audio collaborations, and articles have also been published in a tidy, shiny heap of literary magazines and contests, including these: Daily Science Fiction, PANK Magazine, Bourbon Penn, NANO Fiction, We’Moon, Hunger Mountain, Going Down Swinging, matchbook, Gargoyle, The Doctor T.J. Eckleberg Review, flashquake, Luna Station Quarterly, and others.

Edit & Shine is my editing business, offering services to polish your written work and help it shine. I’ve been a prose reader for Boulevard Magazine for some time, and I enjoy that. I’m also the Maker of Magic & Adjustments (helping with graphic design, podcast, and website) at Plume: A Writer’s Companion, a writing community and literary podcast for women-identifying and non-binary writers.
