Life and careerEdit

Born in San Francisco, United States, she is a Lesbian and Two-Spirit identified writer who focus on themes revolving around the violence that adjoins everyday life in many urban areas.[1] She also tries to incorporate an awareness of universal currents in her works, introducing a diverse mixture of characters and ideas. Her first published work, Not Vanishing concentrates on a Native American woman and environment she returns to after work, a life shielded from mainstream cultural understanding.
