- 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.

For a Good Cause
Only for charity will I dress up in a chain of plastic bottles. (Tom's wearing a hat with a plane on it made from recycled tin cans.) I'll also be sporting a hand bag made from recycled dryer sheet boxes. Tres chic, n'est pas? Tonight Tom and I, along with a friend of ours, are battling in our town's spelling bee for literacy. Our team's name is The Three Rs and we hope to inspire our town to have recycling pick-up. All proceeds from the teams' entry fees as well as donations go to our local Adult Literacy Center. Wish us luck!! We need it.
