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 in Red Line Blues, SN Review, the Gihon River Review, The Metamer Quarterly, and elsewhere. My story "Silver Tongue" won the Iron Horse 2020 Trifecta contest. Right now, I'm writing 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 variety of subjects. Recent favorites include: male entitlement, radiocarbon dating, social media, Obamacare, and Chinese poetry in translation.
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.
