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, won a 2018 grant from the Barbara Deming Memorial Fund. In 2019 it was selected as a finalist for the SFWP Literary Awards program, judged by Carmen Maria Machado, and for the James Jones First Novel Fellowship.

My short fiction has appeared in Black Warrior Review, FLAPPERHOUSE, Green Mountains ReviewIron Horse Literary ReviewSouvenir LitGrist: A Journal of the Literary Arts (Online Companion), and elsewhere.

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