In case you missed it, I was interviewed by the amazing Evan Karp in last week's SF Weekly. You can read all about my obsession with RuPaul and Laura Ingalls Wilder here. Evan is the literary impresario behind SF's Quiet Lightning, and he's interviewed a number of amazing Bay Area writers for Litseen and SF Weekly--a treasure trove.

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.
