Bewildering Stories biography

A graduate of Wichita State University’s MFA Writing Program, I have published in Shenandoah, Tampa Review, Painted Bride Quarterly, The New Novel Review, The Sun, and other magazines.

I am a former recipient of the Hugh Luke Award and my stories have twice been nominated for inclusion in the Pushcart Prize anthology.

I teach fiction, memoir, and storyboarding at Writers and Books of Rochester and head up the Artisan Jazz Trio (, which performs in the Syracuse, Rochester, Buffalo corridor.
