I am a writer interested in examining the role of Medieval to Early Modern literature and myth in science fiction and fantasy. That is to say, I like things that are very old and things that are very silly.
I graduated with a double major in English and Psychology and a Dance minor from The George Washington University. There, I completed an honors thesis, Fairies, Fabrics, and Freethinkers: Staging Acts of Female Power for Medieval and Early Modern Courts, examining the role of political power in the portrayal of fey in literature from the 12th to the 15th century.
I worked in Washington D.C. and became a senior contributing writer for Book Riot before making my way back to academia. I graduated from the M.A. English program at Georgetown University and completed my thesis, Medievally Hers: Femme Medievalisms, Fantasy, and Fandom. In the meantime, I’ve also written for Tor.com. I hope to continue to use an academic literary lens to connect to a popular audience, bringing myth from Medieval and Early Modern literature into conversation with popular Science Fiction and Fantasy.
