I'm a writer based in Seattle, Washington, where I live with my family on Beacon Hill.
My work has appeared in the New York Times, New York magazine’s The Cut, and been featured on NPR’s Fresh Air. In a previous life I was the staff food writer at Seattle alt-weekly The Stranger.
Like a Mother, my narrative nonfiction book exploring the emerging science and long-standing cultural myths of pregnancy and motherhood, was published in May 2018. It was named a Best Book of the Year by NPR. Currently I’m working on my next project, a book of reported essays about (brown female) bodies.
I’m available for freelance assignments and speaking engagements. Please drop me a line through the Contact page.
