I live in the Adirondack Foothills. Every day, I walk its riverbanks, old plank roads, and battle sites, a landscape that supplies rich creative inspiration. I’ve lived in Alaska, Montana, and on a remote island in northern Lake Michigan. Places with long winters stir and crystallize my storytelling.
I have published short stories, nonfiction, and poetry in Alaska Quarterly Review, Artful Dodge, Blue Mesa Review, Consequence Forum, and The MacGuffin. I’ve been the recipient of the Marion Gordon Memorial Prize in Fiction at Western Michigan University and the Irving S. Gilmore Emerging Artist Grant from the Kalamazoo Arts Council. I received my MFA from Western Michigan University. I was a bad MFA student, but received life-altering mentoring from my teachers Stu Dybek, Jaimy Gordon, and the late Herbert Scott.
