Tell us a little about yourself?

I write about queer intimacy with place (I've had many, many different addresses). I love exploring the unknown and wildness- both artistically and experientially. Books and writing have been constants for me as long as I can remember.

Who are some of your favorite nonfiction writers?

Janisse Ray, Michael Perry, Terry Tempest Williams, bell hooks, Lillian Smith, Rachel Carson, V. Woolf, Firoozeh Dumas, Rebecca Solnit, Nawal El Saadawi, Natalie Goldberg, Susie Bright, Azar Nafisi, Jaclyn Friedman, Winona LaDuke, Dorothy Allison

What would you like to get out of this meetup?

I benefitted a great deal from my book and writing groups in MN. I desire both any place I call home.


I'm a creative nonfiction writer new Again to the Triangle (spent 6 months here in 2012 before I headed back to MN to begin a low residency MFA program in children's and young adult lit). I adore books, bodies of water, brussel sprouts, and biking.
