I'm a writer based in Seattle, Washington, where I live with my family on Beacon Hill. 

My book Like a Mother, essays 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.

I was the staff food writer at Seattle newsweekly The Stranger. I’m available for freelance assignments and speaking engagements.
