About Me

Hi, I’m Carly. I was born in southern California, raised in a terrible small Texas town, and spent five years living in Beijing, China. In 2010, I graduated from St. Edward’s University in Austin, Texas with a degree in English Writing and Rhetoric. I am beginning an MA in Writing for Stage and Broadcast Media at the Royal Central School of Speech and Drama this autumn.

I am the author of the novel Year of the Goose (Dec. 2015, Unnamed Press), and the memoir, A Farewell to Walmart (Nov. 2016, Little A). My writing has appeared in The Guardian, The Los Angeles Review of BooksLitHub, and Identity Theory, among other publications. I’m currently at work on my next book, and have been trying my hand at screenwriting.
