Writer of facts and fiction
I write novels and stories inspired by sets of facts and bodies of knowledge. I'm a graduate of the Iowa Writers' Workshop, and my writing appears or is forthcoming in Iron Horse, Stone Canoe, Red Line Blues, SN Review, The Metamer Quarterly, and elsewhere. Right now, I'm at work on a novel in short stories connected by water.
I live in Ithaca, New York, where I work as a writer for Cornell's College of Arts and Sciences, reporting on faculty research in a wide range of subjects. Recent favorites include articles on: babies, black holes, and a book of spellbinding poetry.
Send me a thought, a link, or a poem. I love to connect with people in the writing community. And fellow runners and theater geeks, too.
