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!

"Under the Bookcase"

My story "Under the Bookcase" is now available in The Outrider Review, Volume 1, Issue 4. It's available in either hard copy or digital form. Click on the link above then scroll down the website's main page and you'll see the issue for sale.

This story is about a troubled young man named Cole Ingram who becomes entwined in the lives of husband and wife Richard and Debbie Goodwin. Richard and Debbie, at first a lonely couple, are passionately drawn to Cole as he is to them. A strange and powerful love develops between the three. But Cole is not who or what he appears to be, and his secrets could lead to tragedy.

I am particularly fond of this piece and of Cole Ingram. I had a good time developing him and his story and feel honored to have had the work published by The Outrider Review.
