I’m the author of the essay collection, Tell Me If You’re Lying, which debuted from Barrelhouse Books in 2016.
Proud Scorpio. Cancer ascendant. Moon in Gemini.
I live with an adorable gray kitty named Shadow Stevens.
I graduated from UNC-Greensboro with a BA in English and received my MFA from Emerson College. For nearly eight years I was a staff writer for the Harvard Gazette. I also ran a brief, but unforgettable storytelling salon at Oberon based on the seasons of our lives.
My current projects include a collection of poems about growing up in the American South; a second collection of essays about men and misogyny; and a memoir about how I’ve modeled my life after Dirty Dancing.
