Arria identifies as chronically ill & disabled, queer, feminist and faithfully middle-aged. Her preferred pronouns are she/her.

She is sometimes able to write. When she does, Arria’s, work often explores the intersections between chronic illness & disability, ecology, culture and spiritual understanding. She shares a small house by a lake, near Kingston, Ontario, with her mother and their ridiculously adorable dog. (Her mother is pretty cute too.)

Drawing heavily on speculative and surrealist elements, Arria focuses on creative fiction, primarily in short story form.  She’s also been known to write a little poetry and non-fiction.  When she can, she works on nurturing a couple of story-babies into fully fledged novels.

Arria feels passionately about writing women-centred worlds, populated by feminist, queer-identified, differently-abled characters, living with divergent, often marginalized, conditions.
