About Me

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!

Featured Author Interview in The Round Up Writer's Zine

I got to be the featured author in the latest issue of The Round Up Writer's Zine. Thanks to Ed Jessup, the editor-in-chief, for asking me to do the interview!

It was a lot of fun to do. I answered questions about the two stories I've had published in The Round Up, "A Good Boy's Tale" and "The Adirondack Room". I talked about what inspires me, other works I'm proud of, when I knew I wanted to be a writer, my blog and my advocacy for mental illness in it, etc. Please take a look if you have a chance, and please support this great publication by reading it. It's an online journal with past issues archived.
