For readers who enjoy action-packed, metaphorically rich, politically-empowered stories devised to make you think, know, and act on the inequalities of our world.
For those who love cross-genre explorations, rooted in imaginative scenarios and relationships, with exquisite, unconventional writing made brilliantly alive by memory and tradition.
For readers who love being plunged into the horrific, psychological, and thought-provoking, while experiencing unorthodox, disorienting, dark journeys with fascinating paranormal elements.
"I try to build in a slow-burning tension, with evolving relationship dynamics, dangers, and wonders along the way. I am always inspired by nature, and everything I write takes place in natural settings. I can’t avoid it. It’s part of who I am."
