About Me

I was an associate editor for a nationally circulated magazine while in graduate school. After a decade of work in the academy, I am eager to return to writing things that more people will read.

Why do you write?

I have stories to tell.

Any favorite authors? Books?

Flannery O'Connor, Larry Brown, Tom Franklin, Robert Hass, Sharon Olds, James Wright, Kate Chopin, Anne Sexton. Faulkner, too, of course.

Hey Tom, No long no see/talk with. You're still in Mississippi, eh? I'm going to give your stuff a read momentarily.

The most confessional poet of them all, and more dangerous looking than Amy Tan when fronting a band.

Anne Sexton. 'Nuf said.
