Author's Bio

My two books of poetry are Island and Living Room (prose poems). My CIA is a lyric essay/memoir. My CIA was named a top ten book of 2012 by the Review of Art, Literature, Philosophy and Humanities and added to their ongoing list of great nonfiction reads. It won a Baker Artist Award; was showcased on Maryland Public Television’s, An Artworks Special; and was featured through an art installation co-produced by Maryland Institute College of Art’s MFA in Curatorial Practice in early December 2013 in Baltimore. I have published widely in literary journals and magazines such as American Poetry Review. I have an MFA in Poetry and an MA in English/Creative Writing. In 2011 and 2014, I won Maryland Individual Artist Awards (state grants in creative writing). I have been awarded finalist/semi-finalist status in the Emerging Writer Fellowship Competition, The Writer's Center, Maryland; the Joaquin Miller Cabin Reading Series, Washington, DC; the Autumn House Press Open Competition; The "Discovery"/The Nation Poetry Contest; the Poet Lore Narrative Poetry Competition; The Chester H. Jones Foundation National Poetry Competition; The Maryland Poetry Review Poetry Contest; and the fellowship competition, Summer Literary Seminars in Lithuania and Kenya, 2013. I teach Creative Writing at Stevenson University and University of Maryland University College. Also, I was just notified I won a Gabehart Prize in Creative Nonfiction.
