My bylines have appeared in Cosmopolitan, The New Orleans Advocate, Huffington Post, BRIDES, The Bitter Southerner, Thrillist, Jackson Free Press and a number of anthologies. My coverage of addiction received a media award from the Council on Alcohol & Drug Abuse for Greater New Orleans.
A native of Baton Rouge, Louisiana, I majored in English at Louisiana State University before getting my MFA in fiction from the University of New Orleans (UNO). Now I’m adviser to the student newspaper at UNO.
I run, bike, pole dance, play keyboards and occasionally sing backup vocals with Shouts & Murmurs and Sexparty. I volunteer as a court-appointed special advocate for abused and neglected children.
