Author's Bio

I’m the author of two collections of short fiction—Between Camelots (winner of the Drue Heinz Literature Prize, University of Pittsburgh Press) and Into the Wilderness (Winner of the Washington Writers Publishing House Fiction Prize, WWPH)—as well as a full-length collection of poetry called We Were the People Who Moved (winner of the Patricia Bibby Prize, Tebot Bach), a chapbook of poetry entitled Autogeography (Finishing Line Press), and a guide to the creative process called The Artist’s Torah (Cascade Books). I have a PhD in psychology from the University of Wisconsin-Madison and an MFA in writing from Vermont College, and I teach creative writing at Georgetown University.
