I’m a novelist, playwright, director and independent producer. My 17 novels include THE CIPHER, SKIN, BUDDHA BOY, TALK, HEADLONG, and the UNDER THE POPPY trilogy. My work has won awards, been multiply translated, and optioned for film and performance. CHRISTOPHER WILD is upcoming – watch the trailer here.
My work crosses and combines genres, from YA to horror to historical. I write novels, give lectures and performative solo readings. With my ensemble, nerve, I create immersive events: GLITTER KING is in process for 2018.
I’m globally-minded, and based in Detroit USA, where I live with my husband, artist Rick Lieder, and Dash the cat.
