Ironskin, her first fantasy novel, was a Nebula finalist. Her stories have appeared in Women Destroy SF, Lightspeed, Tor.com, Strange Horizons, Beneath Ceaseless Skies, and many more.

She grew up in Lawrence, Kansas, but now lives with her family in Portland, Oregon, in an old house on a hill that came with a dragon in the basement and blackberry vines in the attic. She used to do a lot of theatre, but these days she writes plays to get her fix. Sometimes in the summers she works as a face painter, which means a glitter-filled house is an occupational hazard.
She likes pie. She really likes it for breakfast.
