Bio photo

I am the author of Girls at the Edge of the World and The Sea Knows My Name (Dial Books for Young Readers/Penguin Random House). I grew up in Bend, Oregon, received a BA in English and Creative Writing from Stanford University, and am currently based in Melbourne, Australia. You can find my books (and other books I’m fond of) on Bookshop.

I am represented by Andrea Somberg at Harvey Klinger.


Retrograder, my weekly newsletter, explores the precedent for the silly things I care about. I talk about books and culture and sometimes provide bad illustrations. Subscribe for vibes and stick figures.
