I'm a linguist-poet, author, and stitch witch. I am currently working on a novel about 5 teenagers from different countries attending an international school for wizards on the cusp of WWII. Though it takes place in a unique fantasy world, it's about relatively normal problems because life is hard enough when you're 14, even without saving the world. When I am not writing, I spend time quilting. I also co-host the podcast Reading Circle Temple.
