I was born in Alaska and currently live in Brooklyn. I have a BA from Sarah Lawrence College, an MFA in fiction writing from the University of Montana, and a certificate in copyediting from the University of California, San Diego Extension. My fiction is represented by Victoria Marini of the Gelfman Schneider Literary Agency. In addition to my freelance work as a copy editor, I copyedit the blog Morris Dog. I am married to Tag Savage, a designer at Tumblr.
