My younger brother brought home "Uncanny X-Men" #290 one day from the mall after recognizing Storm from the X-Men cartoon we'd stumbled across. And with that, I had discovered comics, or rather my brother had, but whatever. Love of comics eventually led me to the Savannah College of Art & Design where I got a degree in Sequential Art. Love of comics more recently drove a lot of my blogging, which led Brian Cronin to me and the creation of She Has No Head! and from there the 3 Chicks Review Comics podcast, reviews for CBR, and a comics columnist gig on Lit Reactor. In other words, comics have led me a lot of good places.

I'm the author of the superhero novel The Girl Who Would Be King and the novel Storykiller. I'm represented by The Irene Goodman Agency and managed by Principato Young. I live in Manhattan and love it, but constantly fantasize about returning to Los Angeles so that I can go to Target whenever I want and have less frizzy hair.
