I've been a lecturer here at UCI since 2006, where I teach writing students about zombies and food (it's not how it sounds); I'm also an SFF author. I've written On the Bones of Gods trilogy, The Thorne Chronicles duology, and The Weep duology. When I'm not writing or commenting on essays, I'm probably cooking, knitting, and playing D&D.
