About Me

My photo
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!

First Ever Edits

I've gotten my first edits for my short story "Honeymoon" from Megan Embry, my editor at Musa Publishing/Erato (GLBT) imprint.  This is the first time I've ever worked with an editor on edits I need to make, so it's pretty exciting.  My other short stories that are being published this summer ("Vladimir Lenin Grown Weary", "Mr. Gribbles Eats a Beetle", and "Shadow People") will be published as I've submitted them.  But Musa treats everything, including short stories, like books.  I'll even get covers for "Honeymoon" and "Arthur Cleary", my other short story that's to be published by Musa/Erato in November.  It's neat to be experiencing how the whole process works.

"Honeymoon" is due to be released in August of 2012.  I can hardly wait to see it in its finished form!
