I write speculative fiction and poetry. My agent is Rebecca Strauss at DeFiore & Company.
I am a wife, mother, Latina, atheist, introvert, anarchist, spoonie, vegetarian, and feminist--all at the same time! Queer, too, with poly and kinky friends I love dearly. :)
From August 31, 2009, to August 31, 2010, I posted a new poem every day. Since then I have friends-locked some of these works. Any poem appearing on this blog is mine, unless otherwise indicated. Please do not reblog poems without first obtaining permission from me.
