I'm the author of THE OUTSIDE, an #ownvoices non-neurotypical space opera upcoming in June 2019 from Angry Robot Books; of MONSTERS IN MY MIND, a collection of fiction and poetry from Autonomous Press; and of Autistic Book Party, a long-running in-depth reviews series devoted to the representation of autism in science fiction and fantasy. If you're a fan of any of my writing, then I'm here to bring you closer access to works new and old, and input into my process - especially the ability to choose what's most important for you to see reviewed.

When I'm not writing, I'm a term adjunct teaching computer science to undergraduate students, and it's rewarding as day jobs go, but some months it barely makes ends meet. My Patreon backers help keep my writing income stable, and help me to afford those important extras that writers need - including the books that I review for you. Autistic Book Party will always be free to read, but backers like you can help keep it financially viable and relevant to what readers need. You also help support my career more generally, as a queer autistic author writing cutting-edge diverse speculative fiction.
