know bout me
I'm a word nerd who has been working in trade and scholarly book publishing since 2012. I had a tiny flash of brilliance with my own writing in the early 2000s. Then I floated for years. Now, after listening to a thousand goddamn podcasts, here I am with a Squarespace domain just like everyone else, intent on rigging my shoelaces to a ceiling fan and giving this writer thing a real whirl.
Influences are Lorrie Moore, Janice Galloway, Shirley Jackson, Toni Morrison, Isaac Hayes, Kristin Hersh, Zadie Smith, Theodore Roethke, and Juicy J.
I am from Birmingham, Alabama, and have lived in dope towns like Memphis and Austin. Also, Aberdeen, Scotland. I have been everything from a cleaning lady paid under the table to a literal lawn ornament wearing antebellum costumery. I have seen some shit. Not much, but some.
