About Me

My short stories have appeared or are forthcoming in Glimmer Train, Michigan Quarterly Review, Colorado Review, StoryQuarterly, Southern Humanities Review, Bellingham Review, Pleiades, Green Mountains Review, Ascent, upstreet, and elsewhere. My story collection, After the Party, was a finalist in the recent Press 53 Award for Short Fiction.

Awards for my stories include a Rona Jaffe-Bread Loaf Fiction Scholarship, first place in Glimmer Train's Fiction Open Contest, Bellingham Review's Tobias Wolff Award, and first runner-up in the StoryQuarterly contest judged by Karen Russell.  

I have served for three years on the Bread Loaf Admissions Board, and I teach fiction writing at Montclair State University in New Jersey.
