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