About Me

My photo
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!

Here Comes 2016!

I hope you all had a very happy holiday season! And Happy New Year! I hope that 2016 brings happiness, good health, and good fortune to you.

I plan to keep on writing as much as possible, as well as reading as much as possible in order to learn how to write better, learn about human nature and the world, and enjoy good books.

I plan to continue writing and hopefully finishing my novel Hoping It Might Be So. I will also continue work on my memoir Violets Are Blue: Essays About My Bipolar Life. And I will continue to write short stories and essays and hope they find publication.
