Hi! I’m Dale. My number one goal in life is getting my cat to stop eating the dish towels. My close second is to write things that make people feel like they’re not alone in the world.

I began writing for fun when I was a kid living in the Netherlands and needed something to do whenever it rained—about five times a day.

I’ve been making up stories ever since, from overly workshopped literary fiction (college almost destroyed my muse) to off-the-cuff fanfic. Queer Mormons have a way of popping up in my work. So do immigrants and emigrants, people with disabilities, multilingual folks, and others who, like me, spend their lives navigating multiple cultures.

Want to hear from me when I have a new book out, or when I’m so excited about something I’m researching for a story that I just have to tell everybody about it?

Join my readers’ circle. You’ll get free stories and probably learn a new thing or two about the world (like how to talk about love in three different sign languages).
