About

bio.jpg
 

I’m a speculative author and ravenous inkdrinker with a sweet tooth for rock’n’roll witchcraft horror fantasy. I love loud music, brutal fiction, drop-dead glamour, dancing like a fiend, and taking my notebook everywhere through it all.

I grew up in some fun and not-so-fun parts of South Jersey, and survived high school behind a protective wall of Clive Barker and Stephen King. I moved to Philly, worked in one of the nation’s oldest occult shops for a while, and went on to spend a decade in San Fran. I attended Clarion West in 2007 and I’m now a member of NYC-based writing group Altered Fluid. Besides writing, I'm into bellydance dabbling, synthwave, horror movie interior decorating, metal, and exploring the symbiotic relationship between witchcraft and art. I currently make my home in Queens, with two lucky black cats.

Other various fascinations: old movies that have Barbara Stanwyck and Greta Garbo in them, live music, art nouveau, D&D, industrial noise, thrift shopping, tattoos, VHS morsels, long walks through the deco puzzlebox of Manhattan, running away to the beach, and endless caffeine.
