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 Tiger Earring" Now Available

My short story "The Tiger Earring" is now available in Sliver of Stone Magazine. I'm particularly fond of this story and like its structure... it's all told in reverse. We start with the main character Elsa in 2067 and end with her in 1985. It's a love story, but what happens in it? You'll have to read it to find out!

Even though the story starts in the future, it's not science fiction. It's very much a story about people, relationships, choices, and consequences. It has what I think is a wistful, reflective tone. I hope you enjoy reading it as much as I enjoyed writing it!
