I'm a 24-year-old graduate of Grinnell College with a B.A. in English. I have three nonfiction books published; you can read more about them on the My Books page. I'm much more active on Twitter, because it discourages my inner editor.
Right now, I work as a legal assistant at a law firm in Portland. If that doesn't sound awesome, it is. I also serve on the board of Street Roots. I'll be starting law school next fall.
I'm torn between two projects right now, both YA - a magical realism novel set on a southern Oregon ranch, and a contemporary novel set in downtown Portland. In theory, I'm also editing the novel that I originally drafted during NaNoWriMo 2010, The Brothers and Sisters of Interesting People.
I was born and raised in Portland, Oregon, a.k.a. the best city in America, and have now moved back. I love the Portland Timbers, food, politics, and travel; hobbies include taking apart old computers to build new, better ones, cooking without recipes, and drawing excessively complicated geometric doodles. I love reference books, especially cookbooks and foreign-language dictionaries (in addition to fiction, not instead of it), and really do enjoy copyediting.
Feel free to contact me.
