About Me

I'm the author of a short story collection Beautiful Girls (MacAdam/Cage) and a young-adult novel Rosie and Skate (Random House). I've been nominated for a Pushcart prize, and I'm a recipient of fellowships from the Jerome Foundation and the New York Foundation of the Arts. I teach fiction writing at NYU, the Writer's Voice of the West Side Y in New York City, and online at UCLA Extension.

Why do you write?

What fuels my creativity? Walking, being outside, reading good books, doing new things and not allowing myself to get into ruts. I can be a hopeless creature of habit.

Any favorite authors? Books?

My top five:
The Member of the Wedding
Jane Eyre
Foreign Affairs
Pride and Prejudice

I find everything by Carson McCullers compelling and readable. I'd also read anything by Mary Gaitskill and Barbara Gowdy.

Some young-adult novels I love:
Weetzie Bat
Dinky Hocker Shoots Smack
Owl in Love
