My work has appeared in literary journals and magazines such as Monkeybicycle, Stymie Magazine, ESPN the Magazine, Parent:Wise Magazine, Our Stories, InDigest Magazine, Strange Horizons, Prick of the Spindle, Used Furniture Review, The Big Jewel, and numerous alternative weeklies.

    Why do you write?

    You mean ... I could have been doing something else this whole time?! Damnit.

    Any favorite authors? Books?

    Favorite authors. My goodness, this is like asking me who my favorite daughter is (the brown-headed one). BUT, I will tell you who I defer to regularly whenever I have writer's block: Michael Chabon, Joy Harjo, Cormac McCarthy, Derek Walcott, Louise Erdrich, Zadie Smith, Nick Hornby ....
