I'm a writer and teacher living in Toronto. My work has appeared in The Puritan, Midwestern Gothic, The Fiddlehead, and others.

I'm currently rewriting/editing/having a love-hate relationship with my first novel, which follows a young girl whose mother, in a seemingly irreversible act of desperation, sends her from the Tennessee frontier to the Charleston Orphan House.

Favorite writers: Louise Erdrich, Lauren Groff, Heather O'Neill, Flannery O'Connor, Mary Lawson, Tennessee Williams, Elizabeth Gilbert, Anthony Doerr, Mary Oliver
