She studied poetry in England and her work has appeared in publications such as The Poetry Review, The Yale Review, and Verse Daily.

The twins and the troll go on the run—and are shot at, kidnapped, buried, arrested, killed (only briefly), and discover the strongest bond is not between atoms, but rather between twins.
