Author's Bio

I am a writer and editor living in Lenexa, Kansas. I grew up on Long Island and went to college at Binghamton University, where I earned a master’s degree in fiction writing. In addition to poetry, I have published short fiction and am co-author of the libretto for the oratorio We, the Unknown, which was premiered by the Heartland Men's Chorus in Kansas City in June 2018. I work occasionally as a writer of book club discussion guides for MacMillan Publishing. I am available for readings, private editing and coaching, and group workshops.
