I am an expat author living in Sydney, Australia where I teach literature and writing at Sydney University and Western Sydney University. My second novel, Aletheia, was a 2018 Aurealis Award finalist and my first novel, American Monster was shortlisted for the 2015 Wonderland Award. My new collection of short stories, Collision:Stories, is available here and everywhere and has earned advance praise from Angela Slatter, John Langan, Kathe Koja, Stephen Graham Jones, and others and has been reviewed at the New York Journal of Books. Vol 1: Brooklyn, Hellnotes and elsewhere. You can find my short fiction, essays and poetry in Black Static, Juked, Unnerving, Lightspeed, Gamut, The Nervous Breakdown, Vol. 1 Brooklyn, LitReactor, and in anthologies like Welcome to Dystopia, and Women Writing the Weird. Born in California, raised in New York, educated in New Zealand and Australia, I also regularly teach and occasionally columnate at LitReactor.com, and appear at conventions around the world where I read, panellate and do everything except sleep. In 2018 I was a grateful recipient of the CreateNSW Artist Quick Response Support Grant, which enabled me to attend World Fantasy Con, Baltimore.
My third novel, The Bridge, is due for publication in early 2021.
