Nominated for The Pushcart Prize, Best Small Fictions, and The Millions, my poetry, fiction, and creative nonfiction have appeared widely in such journals as Bellevue Literary Review, Pembroke Magazine, Split Rock Review, Tahoma Literary Review, Barely South, and Wilderness House Literary Review. I earned an MFA in fiction from the University of North Carolina Wilmington, where I served as managing editor for the literary journal Chautauqua. I teach virtual creative writing courses via the Museum School Cameron Art Museum and throughout other corridors of the Internet, and provide one-on-one writing coaching for victims of trauma. My work leading creative writing workshops for combat veterans resulted in writing Nermina’s Chance, my debut novel (October 29, 2021, Atmosphere Press). Meanwhile, find me HERE!
