This week she interviews me.
Kelly Spitzer is not only a talented writer (I still remember a short story of hers I read nearly five years ago) but a talented interviewer as well. I'm a very private person--but not so private I don't have a blog--but she didn't allow me to slide by with two-words answers. Kelly works at these interviews, and with an always graceful manner gets the answers she wants.
- 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.
