Currently, I'm an assistant editor for Narrative Magazine. I'm also working on two novels and a short story collection.

Two books I'm very excited to have on my reading shelf are "Doctor Olaf van Schuler's Brain" by Kirsten Menger-Anderson and "in the devil's territory" by Kyle Minor.
I'm almost finished with Kirsten's book and let me tell you it's an amazing tour of primitive medicine through the years. If you're anything like me, and know that mad doctors, weird cures and history all woven together with excellent prose is your thing, then this is definitely a book you will want for reading pleasure.
And I'm itching to dig into Kyle's collection. I'm a fan of his nonfiction which is emotive and human and beautifully written and now I'm looking forward to reading his made-up stories.
