About Me

My short stories have appeared in Ascent, Bellingham Review, Chautauqua Journal, Cimarron Review, Colorado Review, Glimmer Train, Green Mountains Review, Michigan Quarterly Review, Pleiades, Southern Humanities Review, StoryQuarterly, upstreet, West Branch, and elsewhere. My story collection, After the Party, was a finalist in the Press 53 Award for Short Fiction and in the Iowa Short Fiction Award.

My work has been supported with a Rona Jaffe-Bread Loaf Fiction Scholarship and a Virginia Center for the Creative Arts fellowship. Awards for my stories include 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 six years on the Bread Loaf Admissions Board. I teach fiction writing at Montclair State University in New Jersey.
