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 a poem in The Poeming Pigeon, 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. My story "Santa Lucia" was nominated for a Pushcart Prize. I've written three novels entitled Purple Loosestrife, Hoping It Might Be So, and Dark and Bright, all of which are as yet unpublished. I'm working on a memoir about my experiences with bipolar disorder. 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!

Today's the big day of the release of my story "Honeymoon" by Musa Publishing in their Erato (GLBT) imprint! Please click here for the link that will let you buy my story for your computer (in .pdf file format) or your e-reader (various formats).

I so hope people enjoy it! I enjoyed writing it and creating the characters Lee Mullens and Sanders Hamilton. I also enjoyed placing the story in my fictional town of Haversville, which is where my as-yet-unpublished novel Purple Loosestrife takes place (it's still in the editing stages). In fact, the main characters in Purple Loosestrife don't live very far away from the Haver Corners Inn!

Happy reading to those of you who buy "Honeymoon". And happy reading today in general. It's always a good day to read!
