Here is where you can find my fiction and critical nonfiction, focusing on the validity of joy, all sorts of queer narratives, and the intersections of gender, sex, faith, and literature! I’ve got a penchant for romance, SFF, horror, and narrative non-fiction, but truly – nothing and no one is safe. The work here has been published at a wide variety of online outlets, including The Book Smugglers and the Hugo Award winning site Lady Business.

In addition to being an outlet for Ana and Thea’s bottomless obsession with books, reviews, and assorted popgeekery” and every year the run a winter-time celebration of all things media and pop culture referred to as Smugglivus!
