The Vampire Always Bites Twice is the Wattys 2022 Grand Prize Winner (English)! Stay tuned, Greg & Isla will return.


I earned my BFA from The University of the Arts in 2014, where I majored in Writing for Film & Television, and minored in petty hexes. My short stories (under a different name) have been featured by Flash Fiction Magazine, Havok Publishing, and Owl Hollow Press. I enjoy writing mysteries about sex, undeath, and witchcraft. This bisexual witch and wine enthusiast lives in Philadelphia with my lover and two feline familiars. I swear I have never reanimated any of them. Pinky promise.


Find me as "ahopelessnecromantic" on AO3, Instagram, and Tumblr (link below).

Feeling generous? Buy Me a Ko-fi! The more caffeinated I am, the more I write:
