Selected Publications

Vermont + Portland

My first book, LADY KILLERS (Harper Perennial, 2017), will be released on October 10th. Pre-order it at IndieBound now or wherever books are sold.

Old-School Show-Offs is my column at the Awl exploring forgotten memoirs written by rakish individuals. Here’s the first installment, on the 17th-century “lieutenant nun” Catalina de Erauso. Here’s the second installment, on the father-avenging gunslinger Frank Eaton. Here’s the third installment, on a bold turn-of-the-century dame called the “greatest living woman thief” by the newspapers.

Damned Souls and How to Write About Them is my column for Medium’s new subscription-only vertical. Here’s the first installment, on religion + murder.

For Vice, I’ve written about crushed artistic dreamspeople who call themselves “multiples,” Johnny Depp Impersonators, people who wish they were blind, and boring EDM festivals. I also wrote an article about a model who lost her leg to toxic shock syndrome that went viral.

For GOOD, I’ve written about emotional labor and profiled the astronomer Lucianne Walkowicz.

For Salon, I’ve written about the loneliest thread on the internet and Robin Williams’ secret life as a video gamer.

For Jezebel, I’ve written about the serial killers Mary Ann Cotton and Tillie Klimek.

For the Hairpin, I’ve written about the serial killers Erzsebet Bathory and The Marquise de Brinvilliers.
