I'm a whimsically morbid writer in a mad love affair with words.

Here you'll find dark and fanciful tales filled with the bizarre and macabre: bones and organs, cadavers and killers, experiments gone wrong--there's no telling what monstrosities my twisted imagination might dream up next.

Above all, you'll find flawed, relatable characters who will both infuriate and delight as they struggle to stay alive (it's a real challenge with me as their writer).

And on occasion, you might get something cute and sweet.

Oddity that I am, I can't seem to stick to either American or British spellings despite having been born and raised in the USA.


I take my writing seriously, and I want to put my best work out there for my readers. Any feedback and constructive criticism is more than welcome. Don't worry, I don't bite (unless you insult my cat).

If you ask me to read your writing, I'm going to assume you're looking for constructive criticism. If you're simply interested in praise, I'm probably not the reader for you.

I do NOT follow for follow.
