Hi! I learned to read when I was three and never stopped. I have a B.A. in English (Literature) and a B.S. in Criminal Justice from Calumet College of St. Joseph (class of 2005). When I was nine, I started writing and it's been full speed ahead and damn the torpedoes ever since. I favor fantasy (especially urban fantasy) and horror, and occasionally dabble in science fiction and other genres.

I've worked as a freelance writer for White Wolf Games in the past. So far, I've worked on Scion Companion, Night Horrors: Immortal Sinners for Vampire: The Requiem, the Scion SAS Seeds of Tomorrow (my first solo project, yay!, and now available for purchase as a .pdf through http://www.drivethrurpg.com), and Dancers in the Dusk and Swords at Dawn for Changeling: The Lost.





I also write poetry in my spare time. (There's such a thing as spare time?) My most recent works can be found here:

"Dahut's Curse" (published in the September 2009 issue of Cabinet Des Fées).

"Tam Lin's Garden" (published in the Autumn 2009 issue of the webzine Goblin Fruit).

"Diamonds and Toads" (published in the March 2009 issue of the webzine Aphelion).

"Lady of the Cedars" and "The Death of Actaeon" in the anthology Unbound, published in May 2009 by Bibliotheca Alexandrina. (This anthology also contains my short story, "Three Arrows".)

"Pomegranate", in the anthology Jabberwocky 4

My poem "Persephone's Dilemma" won the Naukrateia writing contest held by Neos Alexandria.

My poem "Herne," was published at Eternal Haunted Summer in their Winter Solstice 2009 issue; it has since been accepted for publication in the Horned God devotional anthology Hoofprints in the Wildwood< by Gullinbursti Press.

My poem "Odin's Call" was printed in issue #81 of The Troth's magazine Idunna.

My poem "In Utgard-Loki's Hall" was printed in issue #83 of The Troth's magazine Idunna.

My poem "Kentucky Woods, 1977" was printed in Volume 2, issue #1 (2010) of the Chicago small-press poetry journal Exact Change Only.

My poem "A Solstice Carol" was published in the December 2010 issue of the Chicago Pagan Pride newsletter and can be found here (scroll almost all the way down to the bottom).

My poem "Gudrun's Lament on Her Deathbed" was printed in issue #85 of The Troth's magazine Idunna.

My poem "Apology to Hekate" has been printed in the anthology Bearing Torches, published by Bibliotheca Alexandrina.

On the fiction front, I recently had a story, "Washerwoman", accepted for publication in the anthology The Phantom Queen Awakes -- my first professional, non-freelance fiction sale! The anthology was released by Morrigan Books in February 2010.
