I am a nonbinary Latinx speculative fiction author, godless liberal, and art school dropout recovering from a childhood growing up Mormon in the Mountain West.

As a full-time freelancer, I edit novel-length genre fiction for Curiosity Quills Press, and contribute regularly to Inhabitat and Care2 Causes. My writing has been published by Lightspeed Magazine, Salon, xoJane, Fantastic Stories of the Imagination, and more. I am the adoptive co-parent of two neurotic cats.

When I’m not focusing on my own work, I provide professional editing services for other writers. You can learn more here.
