She is a graduate of the Iowa Writers' Workshop but the most valuable lessons she's learned about writing she begged/borrowed/stole from the incredible weirdness of everyday life. You can find her work in Five Magazine and Luna Station Quarterly, and you can contact her on Twitter at @dogmycatzindeed or email her at dogmycatzindeed@gmail.com
