I’m a 2005 graduate of Emory University with a degree in English & Creative Writing, and a 2007 graduate of the Clarion Writer’s Workshop, a six-week bootcamp for speculative fiction writers.

Since 2009, my short fiction has appeared in Clarkesworld, Fantasy Magazine, Realms of Fantasy, Lightspeed, Nightmare and Kaleidotrope. My stories have also been published in anthologies such as The Way of the Wizard and The Apocalypse Triptych (edited by John Joseph Adams and Hugh Howey), and reprinted in Aliens: Recent Encounters and Heiresses of Russ 2012: The Year’s Best Lesbian Speculative Fiction. Audio versions of my work have been featured on Podcastle and Drabblecast, and in 2010 I read at the New York Review of Science Fiction Reading Series.

My editorial debut, It Came From the North: An Anthology of Finnish Speculative Fiction, was published by Cheeky Frawg in 2013; it features some of Finland’s top speculative fiction writers.

Together with Jeff VanderMeer, I co-authored The Steampunk User’s Manual (a follow-up to The Steampunk Bible), which was published by Abrams Image in 2014.

My nonfiction pieces on music, literature, and culture have appeared in Lightspeed, Weird Fiction Review, The Steampunk Bible, Wonderbook, and the Huffington Post.
