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, 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!

Acceptance for "The Adirondack Room"

This morning I found out that The Round Up Writer's Zine would like to publish "The Adirondack Room" in their October edition! I've already been published once in this journal. "A Good Boy's Tale" appeared in Volume 1-1, September 2013. I'm happy that they've accepted another story.

It's a great journal. On their website, they say, "The Round Up Writer’s Zine is a fresh space devoted to transgressive pieces, dark humor and works laced in sarcasm. In fact we are partisan to works that are edgy and/or possibly offensive. If this sounds like the type of literature that you secretly (or not so secretly) love to read, this is the place for you!"

I'll tell you a little about both these pieces:

"A Good Boy's Tale" is the story of Kip and his best friend Bobby Bouillon. Their unsavory activities begin with stealing candy bars and eventually lead to a partnership as DWI defense attorneys. But what is the fate of Kip and Bobby Bouillon? And will their fates differ?

"The Adirondack Room" is an odd and anachronistic place that brings about a lot of questions. What's happening in Nevada? What happens in Browncroft, Pennsylvania? What becomes of Ben's toupee? The answers to these questions might be found in the Adirondack Room, or might not.
