Her work has been published in print and online, and she is the author of three books: Soul Picked Clean (March 2019),  An Optimist’s Journal of the End of Days and Other Stories (August 2020), and Pinholes: Traveling through the Curtain of the Night (November 2021, Writing Knights Press). Her poetry collection, Kaleidoscope, will be published later this year via Venetian Spider Press.
