Hi there! I'm Shelby.

I'm a queer writer from the American South with a notoriously promiscuous living habit. My current home/lover is Baltimore, MD, USA.

I write short stories and novels. Occasionally I also write about the intersection of society, technology, and infrastructure on my blog, Civic Unrest, where you can also find links to my other publications related to tech & society.

I'm a 2024 Lambda Literary Fellow, and I've participated in advanced/juried workshops at the Kenyon Review, OneStory Summer Conference, and Lighthouse LitFest.

When not writing, I'm probably hiking with my rambunctious pit bull, Osceola, kicking a ball, or working in community.
