I write, edit, and ghostwrite it all, from the full-length non-fiction book to the memoir, from the Tweet to the weekly blog post. I have interviewed and written for experts in medicine, psychology, marketing, leadership, public relations, and finance.
Excerpts from my novel-in-progress have been published in Hobart’s annual baseball issue, the museum of americana, More Than Sports Talk, Germ Magazine, The American Literary Review, and Louisiana Literature. The excerpt “Little League Girls” won the 2014 Tennessee Williams New Orleans Literary Festival Fiction Prize.
A graduate of the MFA Program for Writers at Warren Wilson College, I am the recipient of the Blanchan Award through the Wyoming Arts Council and the Leo Love Merit Scholarship from the Taos Summer Writers’ Conference. I have received fellowships from the Artist Trust of Seattle, Kimmel Harding Nelson Center for the Arts, Jentel Artists’ Residency, Vermont Studio Center, Brush Creek Arts Foundation, and Djerassi.
Having lived and travelled abroad, I am intimate with big cities and the middle of nowhere. Currently, I enjoy photographing bald eagles and clouds, eating excellent local food, and swimming laps in one of the many places I call home–the Pacific Northwest.
