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!

"Honeymoon", Etc.

Here is the final cover for my short story "Honeymoon" which will be released on August 17th, 2012, by Musa Publishing in their Erato (GLBT) imprint. I love the cover and I'm very excited about its upcoming release!

I've been working with an editor for the first time ever, and she's been so wonderful and helpful. Doing my edits has been a terrific experience.

It's funny how the more edits I do, the more I feel like I could do, but such is the nature of writing. I don't think writers ever truly feel that their pieces--whether novels, stories, essays, poems, etc.--are finished!

In addition to this news, I'd like to report that my story "Shadow People" is now appearing in The Linnet's Wings. And my story "Mr. Gribbles Eats a Beetle" is now appearing in Literary Brushstrokes. Both journals are also available for sale in hard copy form on their respective websites, which you will find by clicking on the story links.
