Fiction Writer, Poet
I write fiction and poetry, as well as book reviews and the occasional essay. My work has earned a Pennsylvania Council on the Arts Individual Artist grant for Fiction, inclusion in the Best American Short Stories 2012 as one of the “Other Distinguished Stories of 2011,” a poet-in-residence position at the Toledo Botanical Gardens from Mid-American Review, and numerous Pushcart nominations. I earned my MFA at Penn State and now live in Huntingdon, Pennsylvania, with my family, and work as vice president of advancement and marketing at Juniata College. I occasionally teach writing at the Chautauqua Institution.
