I write primarily young adult fiction with fantastical elements. My current WIP is an alternate history set in 19th century England and Hungary, featuring a young woman who finds herself on the fringes of her magic-based society and winds up embroiled in the Hungarian revolution.

Find me online:
I write once a month (sometimes more) for Segullah.
I also write regularly for Thinking Through Our Fingers.
