I  write science fiction, fantasy, and horror prose and poetry from the middle of a deep, dark forest in the wilds of southern Louisiana. In my spare time I garden, read, and study ancient history and Pre-Raphaelite art and literature. I’ve also been known to geek out over comic books and video games from time to time.


My stories have appeared in Daily Science Fiction, Nature: Futures, Pseudopod, and the anthologies Children of the Moon and Penny Dread Tales, Vol. I, and my poems have appeared in Goblin Fruit, Mythic Delirium, Star*Line, and Strange Horizons, among others. My work has been nominated for the Rhysling Award, the Million Writers Award, the Pushcart Prize, and appeared on Ellen Datlow's 2015 Recommended Reading List.


Somewhere along the way I also managed to pick up a Bachelor's Degree with Honors in English Literature from Louisiana State University and a Master's Degree in English with a concentration in Creative Writing from the University of Louisiana at Lafayette.
