My new novel, A Great Fullness, is forthcoming from Aqueous Books in 2014. Currently at work on a memoir about my late son Francis and our experience as a military family during the past decade of American war. Excerpts appear in Rathalla Review (Fall 2013) and The Whirlybird Anthology of Kansas City Writers (2012). When I'm not writing, I serve as the Director of Development for the Sierra Club's Kansas Chapter.
