I graduated from Clark University (biology major), worked in the nonprofit sector while attending New England Law at night, clerked for a Land Court judge, and then did the attorney thing for a while (land use and zoning litigation). Eventually, I figured out I wasn’t a fan of going to court. Or maybe it was wearing suits. I needed a new plan. So now I write, mostly essays and short stories but also some longer behind-the-scene projects. When I’m not writing, I’m usually reading or trying to make good in the world, whether it be in my backyard garden or by volunteering my time.
I live in Quincy, Massachusetts, with my husband, daughter, and our Corgi, but I daydream about moving to Vermont.
