I write poetry, short and long horror, and short perseverative autobiographies as a way to process, heal, and share myself and my art with the world. This blog is meant to be read as one giant story. Please do not post my work without crediting me. I have worked hard to develop a unique style and spent years becoming comfortable sharing it.

Aside from writing, I spend most of my time working as a case manager in the public assistance community.  I am open about my own ailments and use them to guide my writing and my work as a case manager and healer. I am also a trained doula, student of herbalism, practicing reiki practitioner (I have disowned this community due to its consistent blind appropriation and misinformation so I identify it as touch therapy), and am working on connecting with more women writers and healers across the country. I keep one foot in the light, and the other in the dark to stay grounded.
