- Originally from Vermont, I now live in North Carolina. My work can be found in recent issues of REAL: Regarding Arts and Letters, The Jabberwock Review, The Emerson Review, Storyglossia, The MacGuffin, Confrontation, Passages North, SmokeLong Quarterly, elimae, wigleaf, Pank, and Gargoyle #57, among others. One of my stories has been translated into Farsi by Asadollah Amraee, and many others by Jalil Jafari, two of which have been published in the Iranian journal, Golestaneh Magazine. Currently, I'm an assistant editor for Narrative Magazine. I'm also working on two novels and a short story collection. In 2011, I was awarded the Carol Houck Smith Contributor Scholarship for the Bread Loaf Writers' Conference.

After five days and four nights at the coast I'm back rejuvenated and ready to dig in to the hard work of reading and writing. (Someone has to do it) ;)
I had a fabulous time. One thing troubles me though. How did I not know there were gators in North Carolina??? I thought I knew everything to fear here, the black widows, the recluse spiders, the cotton mouths, rattlers, copperheads, the water moccasins. The alligators were a complete surprise.
