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!

The Release of "Cure"

My short story "Cure" is now appearing in The Literari Quarterly, Winter 2014, Issue No. 3. This is a post-apocalyptic story; a nuclear war has occurred and the nearest city to a northwestern New York town was destroyed. Everyone in town is dying of radiation sickness. But then a mysterious man named Richie Parker comes to town with a supposed cure. Richie Parker happens to share his name with a long-dead boy from the town. Who exactly is Richie Parker, why is he not suffering the effects of the radiation, and will his cure work?

Please stop by The Literati Quartely and have a read! The journal will also be coming out for purchase in hard copy.
