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written three novels entitled Purple Loosestrife, Hoping It Might Be So, and Dark and Bright, all of which are as yet unpublished.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

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!
