About Me

Hello! I'm a writer from central New York who has bipolar disorder. Among other topics, I write about mental illness and writing. I have short stories published in Lynx Eye, Lost Coast Review, The Outrider Review, Sliver of Stone Magazine, The Mondegreen, The Linnet's Wings, Cobalt Review, Breath & Shadow, The Round Up, Postscripts to Darkness, Masque & Spectacle, and several other journals. I have essays about mental illness in The Ram Boutique and Amygdala Literary Magazine, and an essay in Parts Unbound: Narratives of Mental Illness & Health, a book that was published by Lime Hawk Literary Arts Collective. In December of 2016, The Mondegreen nominated my story "Santa Lucia" for a Pushcart Prize. I've written a novel entitled Purple Loosestrife and a novel entitled Hoping It Might Be So, both of which I am submitting to agents and publishers. I'm working on a novel called Dark and Bright as well as a book called Violets Are Blue: Essays About My Bipolar Life. I have a B.A. in English from SUNY Buffalo and an M.A. in English from SUNY College at Brockport. I hope you enjoy your visit to my blog!

Publication of "Arthur Cleary"

I just found out today that Musa Publishing's Erato (GLBT) imprint has accepted my short story "Arthur Cleary" for publication!  I'm thrilled.  I'm very fond of the story, very happy with the characters and their tale, and happy that they'll be out there in the world.  When I know a release date, I'll post how and where to purchase the story.  Same goes for my other story that Erato is publishing, "Honeymoon".  That story's release date is August 17th, 2012.

  1. A very special shout out to Michael Canavan--my critique partner, Kerry Miskovic, and my parents for critiquing and helping with earlier drafts of "Arthur Cleary".
