A Writer's Life

After earning my Bachelors in English from The Ohio State University, I attended graduate school at Spalding University in Louisville, KY and completed my MFA in 2012. Currently, I'm working a collection of stories and a novel while ghostwriting, critiquing and editing manuscripts for  fellow writers. 

My work has been published in various print and online journals, including Literal Translations, Litmocracy, The Battered Suitcase, Newfound, Darkest Before Dawn, 94 Creations Literary Journal, and BlazeVOX 14. An excerpt from my first short story collection placed in The Blotter Magazine’s Laine Cunningham Novel [and book-length manuscript] Competition in July, 2014. My latest pleasure is recieving an Honorable Mention in Glimmer Train's New Writers Short Story Competition for Jan/Feb 2017.
