A lover of all things that go bump in the night and dyed-in-the-wool spooky bitch, I am the co-creator of Old Gods of Appalachia, an Eldritch horror anthology podcast. I'm a native of Wise, Virginia, where I cut my teeth on the creepy folklore of the region. I also produced and co-hosted Appalachian Arcana, a podcast featuring regional stories of folklore, true crime, cryptids and other general weirdness.
A graphic designer and programmer by trade before making the leap to full time writing in 2020, I attended the University of Georgia (M.A., Speech Communication, 2001) and The University of Virginia's College at Wise (B.A., English Communication, 1999).
I currently reside in Bristol, TN/VA, with my partner Bryan; our dog Loki; cats Azzy, Beerus, Merlin and Fae; and ball python Logan.
