A transplant from the American Midwest, I now live near the mountains of Colorado with my family and a rescue dog named Ziggy.


Described as a writer of "whimsical angst," I'm an MFA graduate of the USM Stonecoast program, an Odyssey Writing Workshop graduate, and a member of Codex.  

My short stories have appeared in the ZNB Press anthology; Year OneFlame Tree Press anthology; Robots & Artificial Intelligence, Apparition Literary Magazine, NewMythsKaleidotrope, and more. Many of the stories are available online. If you would like to read more, check out my publications page link, located under the windup creature from the black lagoon.

  • "The issue begins with 'This Is the Thing' by Chloie Piveral. Nice, effective tale with a good sense of unease."  -SFRevu

  • "A hissing respirator, a body trapped in an institution, and a mind looking for a way out… Piveral goes deep into the dreamlike, slip-sliding world of someone who isn’t all there and isn’t all gone either, and spins a chilling and suspenseful tale full." -Maria Haskins: 10 must-read fantasy & science fiction stories
