Publications & Prizes
I have won many literary awards, including publication in the annual “prize” anthology, The Best American Short Stories. I also won the Carlos Fuentes Award and the Editor’s Prize for fiction from Columbia: A Magazine of Literature and Art as well as first prize in the 2001 Arch & Bruce Brown Foundation short story competition for “redemption of gay history” through creative writing. My first story collection, The Man Who took a Bite Out of His wife, was cited as one of the best story collections of the year in The Year’s Best Fantasy (7th edition, Teri Windling) as well as being selected as a finalist for the Crawford Award (best new fantasy fiction writer of the year). I was also a Wallace E. Stegner Fellow in Fiction at Stanford University.
