I'm a writer who lives in Chicago. My fiction often incorporates animals, transformations (grotesque and otherwise), body horror, and strange desires. I also write comedy sometimes. I'm a first reader for the magazine Liminal Stories, and I review stories that scared me at my blog, What Scared Me. On most days, I work as a client care coordinator at an animal hospital.
