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 Iron Horse, Stone Canoe, Sport Literate, and elsewhere. Find my review of Best Microfiction 2021 at Trampset. I'm at work on a novel composed of short stories, all 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 submarine robot named Icefin.
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.
