About Me

My stories have appeared in Glimmer Train, Michigan Quarterly Review, Colorado Review, StoryQuarterly, Pleiades, Green Mountains Review, Ascent, upstreet, and elsewhere.

I was selected as a Rona Jaffe-Bread Loaf Fiction Scholar, and have served for two years on the Rona Jaffe-Bread Loaf scholarship Admissions Board. I have received an Artist's Grant from Vermont Studio Center. Glimmer Train has awarded my work first place, finalist, and two honorable mentions in their Fiction Open contests.  One of my stories was selected as a first runner up by Karen Russell in StoryQuarterly's fiction contest. My work was also a finalist in recent fiction contests sponsored by Cincinnati Review, New Letters, The Chattahoochee Review, Black Warrior Review, and Crazyhorse. I teach fiction writing at Montclair State University.
