I write and executive produce the award-winning The Strange Case of Starship Iris. I also write for Unwell: A Midwestern Gothic Mystery, and in my spare time I write prose and songs. My work has been highlighted on the Onion AV Club, and featured on NPR.

Quotes

Jessica Best is one of my favorite writers. Her writing is specific, endlessly creative, and transports readers or listeners to new worlds. Working with Jess is an enormous pleasure. She is dependable, deeply collaborative, and takes any feedback and turns it into something more brilliant than I could imagine.
