strong, fierce, wild

That’s my fantasy. I believe that’s what women are.

We are strong, either with our bodies or our emotions, we bear up under great trials, and we persevere. 

We are fierce, fighting off and through all kinds of adversity.

We are wild, forming a deep, natural, creative force that brings life into the world, and nurtures it to adulthood.

I hope, through my stories, to show all these aspects of women, through all kinds of crazy situations.

I was born and raised in Philadelphia, and still live here with my family and some grumpy cockatiels. I am a writer, podcaster, graphic designer and gamer. And I love stories.

I believe stories are a critical part of our society. They give us the change to experience things from other points of view, or imagine things that we may never have thought of ourselves. Story is a great way for people to learn to understand and appreciate each other.
