My writing explores themes of identity, compulsion, and power dynamics. I'm particularly obsessed with the polarity between desire and fear. In fiction, I'm drawn to that which might repel me in real life: the irrational, erratic, grotesque, and absurd. It’s too simplistic to say I'm trying to ‘figure out’ human perversity by writing about it, because I don’t have that expectation. But it has been my occupation to puzzle over it.
