About Me

I am an opinionated liberal, queer, feminist, atheist writer living in the conservative hellscape that is the Bible Belt. I’m very lucky to be living my dream of writing for a living. I’m single, and my one real companion is a spunky little black cat named Belfry. Hopefully something I am putting out here in cyberspace is making at least a small amount of a difference in the world.
