Writer. Editor. Intuitive Leader.

Hi, I’m KJ.

I’m a writer splitting my time between Brooklyn, NY and Urbana, Illinois. My work has appeared in places such as HuffPost, Electric Literature, The Toast, and multiple academic publications. I’m also an experienced editor and writing coach—learn more at my Editing page.

Below you’ll find some highlighted publications and links to where you can find me on social media.

I’m currently querying for my nonfiction book Unpredictable, which weaves together science, witchcraft, and personal experience to illuminate ideas about imagining the future, learning from the past, and seeking answers to the unknown. You can reach me through the form at the bottom of this page.

This site is due for an update soon – life just gets busy, you know? When I’m not writing or busy with my day job, I love to read tarot, knit, crochet, make art, and spend time with loved ones.
