My aunt April shared this with me tonight and it gives me great pleasure.
Women my age are starting to have babies and I end up learning a lot about biological clocks. I have one too, but it ticks for border collies and golden retrievers. Babies might happen sometime too, but I wonder, could they get their goggles off their own heads? These are things to think about.

writer. instructor. editor. doodler. er.
I'm at work on my first book, a collection of linked short stories that follows a community of expatriates living on the southern coast of Spain.
I care about stuff. Like curing type 1 diabetes. And marriage equality. And rights for immigrants. And public radio. And espanol. And Frank O'Hara and Jennifer Egan and Federico Garcia Lorca and Tony Kushner. You know, cool stuff.
I make postcards that are also stories.
Sometimes I read stories and poems out loud.
Sometimes I go to conferences.
You can find my short stories, essays, poems and flash fictio in a variety of places in print and online. If you Google really hard, you might find the two short radio pieces I produced on a badass NPR affiliate in San Francisco.
