I’m a writer from Santa Ana, California.

MARIA, MARIA & OTHER STORIES (Liveright/W.W. Norton) 

is my debut collection of short stories starring mystics and misfits playing in the shadows with big cats and crocodilians. The book is best paired with good coloring pencils and rose petal tea. I'm working on new stories and these are the things that occupy my mind lately: worms, walruses, narwhals, anglerfish, Greenland sharks, Ireland, Iceland, Tierra del Fuego, symbiosis. 

New stories, new soundtrack: Björk, FKA Twigs, Arca, Tirzah, Jai Paul, ABRA
