I’m a poet living in Fayetteville, Arkansas with my husband & son. I’m the author of the chapbook Strange Flesh (Quarterly West, 2018) and have some poems in Nashville Review, Ninth Letter, RHINO, The Journal, The Blueshift Journal, and others. My work has been nominated for the Pushcart Prize and Best New Poets.

Strange Flesh is a truly gorgeous poetry collection that gives us so much atmosphere and energy. I found myself wanting to read each poem again and again. Christ-haunted, lyrically brilliant, Strange Flesh is one of those rare collections I want to read aloud to myself at night.” —Garrard Conley, author of Boy Erased
