My fiction has published in McSweeney’s Internet Tendency, The Southern Review, PANK, TriQuarterly Review, Passages North, and The Little Patuxent Review, and I have twice received an Independent Artist Award in fiction from The Maryland State Arts Council. My short story “A Modern Girl’s Guide to Childbirth” was selected by judge Roxane Gay as one of the 2015 Wigleaf Top 50 (very) Short Fiction winners, and I have been nominated for the Pushcart Prize three times. In 2017, I received the Mary Sawyers Baker Prize in the Literary Arts, and in 2018, I was a National Endowment for the Arts Creative Writing Fellow.
My writing and research have been supported with fellowships and residencies from the Kenyon Review Writers Workshop, the Vermont Studio Center, The Virginia Center for the Creative Arts, the Cuttyhunk Island Writers’ Residency, and Ragdale; and through generous grants from the Sustainable Arts Foundation, The Greater Baltimore Cultural Alliance, the Mid Atlantic Arts Foundation, The Rubys Artist Grant / The Robert W.

I am currently working on a book for Simon & Schuster about Claire McCardell, the trailblazing fashion designer whose revolutionary designs helped women live independent lives.
