I'm thrilled to share that a series of my 100-word stories have been published in the spring issue of Oracle Fine Arts Review, a wonderful journal published by the University of South Alabama, and edited by the force of nature that is Karie Fugett. (If you haven't yet, you really need to read "Needs a Miracle" in Hermeneutic Chaos Literary Journal. It's gorgeous.)

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.
