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 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written three novels entitled Purple Loosestrife, Hoping It Might Be So, and Dark and Bright, all of which are as yet unpublished.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!

Title Change

I've changed the title of my flash fiction story "Bobby Bouillon" to "A Good Boy's Tale". It was pointed out to me by one of my readers--a Professor of English Emeritus with a Ph.D. in English and Linguistics (who also happens to be my dad)--that the story is somewhat Chaucerian. I agree, and since I did my master's thesis on Chaucer's Canterbury Tales, it seemed fitting that I should name my story something in keeping with its Chaucerian form.

The tale is about Kip, a good boy who falls under the influence of a boy named Bobby Bouillon. I intend to have it critiqued by my writers group and then look for good places to submit it to.
