About Me

I'm the author of four novels: The Phantom Limbs of the Rollow Sisters, The Singing and Dancing Daughters of God, Devils in the Sugar Shop, and one forthcoming, all from Unbridled Books. My work has been selected for the Barnes and Noble Discover Great New Writers program, and has been a Book Sense pick and a New York Times Book Review Editors’ Choice. I am the online editor of Prairie Schooner, a contributing editor to Fairy Tale Review, and the director of the (downtown) omaha lit fest and the Nebraska Summer Writers’ Conference.

Why do you write?

Music, art, characters/voices. I'm not sure why I write; I've just never NOT written since I first learned how to write.

Any favorite authors? Books?

William Faulkner: "The Sound and the Fury"
Toni Morrison: "The Bluest Eye"
Richard Yates: "Easter Parade"
John L'Heureux: "The Shrine at Altamira"
Roald Dahl: "Charlie and the Chocolate Factory"
