(? - ) US editor and author who began publishing work of genre interest with "My Only Sunshine" in Flub: A Webzine of Astonishing Tales for Fall-Winter 2009, assembled with a wide range of work as Living Forever & Other Terrible Ideas (coll 2020). As Tim Powers suggests in his introduction to the book, her very wide-ranging tales, many of them sf as Equipoised with fantasy and horror, can be seen as exercises in the absurd (see Absurdist SF), expressed in a language that runs engagingly from perky to gonzo.
