I am a writer of fiction, plays, and book reviews with work in The Masters Review, Fairy Tale Review, The Brooklyn Rail, Sycamore Review, Laughing Earth Lit, Lightning Cake, The Journal, Bookslut, and Slate. 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.
