I am a local writer of fiction, creative nonfiction, poetry and prose and founder of WordSpaceStudios, a literary center that serves writers by offering residencies and workshops. My work has been published and performed in various publications and literary events such as Poetica Magazine, Amerarcana: The Bird and Beckett Review, Entrope, The Blue Nib Review, Bang Out, Litquake, and Listen to Your Mother. My short stories have also been anthologized and received honorary mention and been finalists with Glimmer Train. I am currently working on “Necessities and Desires,” a collection of short stories, as well as a Variations on Life, a novel spanning four generations and two countries.
