Allow me to introduce myself!

I’m Shohreh DAvoodi, and my pronouns are she/her/hers.

As a neurodivergent Iranian-American lesbian, I'm no stranger to navigating intersections and margins. I write and create in order to better understand myself, the world that shaped me, and the changes I want to bring about in our culture. The topics I’m most drawn to are queerness and queer community (especially in taboo spaces like the South), self-trust, shifts in perspective, and my personal experiences with being a mixed-race, divorced femme with ADHD who came out “late.”

Past versions of myself have been an oboist (I have a B.A. in Music Performance from U.W. Madison), a lawyer (I graduated summa cum laude with a J.D. from Chicago-Kent College of Law), as well as a small business owner and podcast host. Future versions of myself are TBD, but I'm steadfastly working to bring several novels into the world and keep developing my craft.

I never shy away from bright colors and glitter. I'm a books, tea, and candles kind of queen with a splash of tattoos, an ear for harmonizing, and a desire to soak in the sun. When I'm not working, there’s a good chance you’ll find me anywhere there are dogs. Otherwise, I'm probably in the bath, on the trail, or on the couch watching Drag Race and doing a puzzle with my fiancée. And while I now happily reside in the Denver area, I'll forever be a Texan at heart.
