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!

Another Acceptance!

I found out yesterday that "A Good Boy's Tale" has been accepted for publication by The Round Up Writer's Zine. I think this story really fits what they're looking for, and obviously they thought so, too! The story will be coming out in September. This is my tenth short story publication. I'm so happy to be in the double digits.

Now I just have to keep sending out queries for my novel, Purple Loosestrife. I've got it out at about four places, but I need to send many, many more queries. And I'll keep writing and submitting short stories. I may have the next one ready to go within the next several weeks. This is the one I'm working on now called "The Infant of Prague". I'm really enjoying writing it, but it needs more work. Ah, revision seems to be never ending!
