I’m a freelance science and technology journalist, and I also write science fiction, fantasy, and horror stories. On a good day, my browser history makes it hard to tell which is which.

staffpicMy work has appeared online and in print at Air & Space, Discover, Gizmodo, Popular Mechanics, and the Washington Post.

My short zombie story, “If All Else Perished,” appeared in the October 2012 charity anthology FEAR from UK-based Crooked Cat Books, and I’m in the process of revising my first novel, an urban fantasy story.  Spoiler alert: there are necromancers.

When I’m not writing or researching, I’m usually reading, knitting, playing RPGs, hiding from search & rescue dogs, or exploring old cemeteries.  Currently, I live in Manhattan, Kansas, where I share an office with a massive hoard of books and an awesome Border Collie named Duke.
