I write

I write to breathe, to try and stop time from tripping on down the trail and around the bend without me, to give the descriptions and wandering wonderings in my head a place to curl up for a while and just be.

Her book Buried in the Suburbs was published in 2018 (Woodley Press) and received the 2019 Notable KS Book Award. Her chapbook Domesticated was published in 2015 (Finishing Line Press).
