About Me

I'm the author of the novel Edinburgh, and have a novel forthcoming from Houghton Mifflin Harcourt, called The Queen of the Night. Currently, I teach fiction writing and the graphic novel at Amherst College as their visiting fiction writer in residence.

Why do you write?

Any favorite authors? Books?

Anne Carson, Joan Didion, Deborah Eisenberg, Jean Rhys, Theresa Hak Yung Cha, Jayne Anne Phillips, John Cheever, Rohinton Mistry, Wells Tower, George Saunders, Lucy Corin, Michael Chabon, Miranda July, Sabina Murray, Andre Aciman, Chris Adrian. More that I'll add later.
