I'm the recipient of a 2010 Individual Artist Fellowship in Lit. Arts from the Tennessee Arts Commission. My short fiction has appeared in The Missouri Review, Tampa Review, and in Ecotone: Reimagining Place. I'm currently finishing up a first novel, and I live and work in my native Memphis, where I live with my wife and son and daughter.
