I study folklore in all its forms — from beliefs to jokes to narratives. The stories we tell each other, and why we tell them, matter to me.
I write books because sometimes the stories I’ve heard or the ones I’ve read are incomplete. In some cases, the worlds aren’t big enough. In other cases, characters I want to read aren’t even there.
That’s why I write: to tell the stories that are missing or the ones I can’t get out of my head.
Linger on my website, and you’ll find stories about myths and kitchens, about dragons and wheelchairs, about fairies and family and friends.
You’ll find stories that are big and bright and beautiful.
