I live, write, and teach in Frederick, Maryland. My articles and essays have appeared in The Washington Post, The Dallas Morning News, The Huffington Post, River Teeth’s Beautiful Things, Pithead Chapel, Hippocampus Magazine, The Rumpus, Literary Mama, The Manifest-Station, Under the Gum Tree, Bellingham Review, Full Grown People, and elsewhere. I have also contributed chapters to multiple anthologies, including Looking for Lockerbie.
Solstice Literary Magazine named my essay “The Gleaming Miraculous” as an Editors’ Pick and finalist in its 2018 summer contest judged by Phillip Lopate. My essay “Mother of Rebellion” was a finalist in Proximity Magazine’s 2016 inaugural personal essay prize. And my poem “Exodus 20:8” was a runner up in the 2009 Charlotte A. Newberger Poetry Prize at Lilith Magazine.
Before I became a full-time community college English professor, I wrote for newspapers and news services in the United States and abroad, including The Sunday Herald (Glasgow, Scotland), Scripps Howard News Service, and the San Antonio Express-News.
Most of my writing now focuses on my book-in-progress (Mother of Rebellion), essays, and poetry.
