I am a freelance technical writer in Northern Virginia. I’m married to a physicist, and we live with an assortment of rescued animals: 2 dogs, 2 foster dogs, some fish, and a horse. I like anything having to do with equestrian activities and animal rescue. Whenever I feel that my life and marriage have not been sufficiently threatened during the week, I attempt to sneak other creatures into the house and see how long it takes my husband to notice. We eventually branched out to owning a non-furry, two-legged animal, and since my husband had a hand at creating that one, he’s allowed her to stay, for the time being. Because that effort continued to turn out well, we’re attempting our hand at another.
I got my MFA from the University of Memphis (Memphis, TN). My work has appeared in places near and far.
I am good at putting my foot in my mouth in front of an audience and suffer from an irrational fear of zombie invasion. I like to read, yell at people in traffic, eavesdrop, fidget, daydream, judge people on their misuses of grammar, seek the company of animals over people, make up soundtracks to my life, and breathe your air.
