I am currently completing work on my first novel, Live To Tell Me So, an early version of which was featured in New York Magazine in 2007. My short fiction has appeared in The Nassau Literary Review and elsewhere, and I have published essays in Blunderbuss, Hippocampus, HowlRound, Brittle Paper, Africa is a Country and The Los Angeles Review of Books.
