I am a writer of fiction, plays, and book reviews with work in Catapult, The Masters Review, Fairy Tale Review, The Brooklyn Rail, Sycamore Review, Slate, and more. I work primarily with fairy tales: adapting them, writing about them, and hunting them down in used bookshops. But I've also been known to write the occasional literary horror story and to review straight up sci-fi. I received an MFA in Creative Writing from Ohio State University in 2011. When I'm not writing, I am busy publicizing university press books. I live with my husband, two cats of opposite colors, and an existential Boston Terrier in State College, Pennsylvania.
