About

Portrait of me, wearing a light blue collared shirt and matching bow tie with a black sweater vest. I have gray hair and dark eyes and eyebrows. I'm standing in a dark hallway with one arm across my belly gripping my other arm, which is hanging straight down. To my right are some books on a shelf.

I live in Ithaca, New York, where I write, bind books, and work as a production editor at Cornell University Press. My debut novel Endpapers, forthcoming from Algonquin Books in February 2023, won a grant from the Barbara Deming Memorial Fund. It was also selected as a finalist for the SFWP Literary Awards program and for the James Jones First Novel Fellowship.

In 2014, I studied with novelist Amy Wallen in the Writer to Writer Mentorship Program of the Association of Writers and Writing Programs.
