Story Collection /The Light Bearers
My short story collection was a finalist for the Serena Mcdonald Kennedy Award. Four of the stories won a
Md Arts Council grant for fiction.
The Light Bearers was published in Green Mountain Review. The Arrival was published in The Worcester Review.
Young Woman Trying to Sleep was published in the North Atlantic Review.
"Pedro, Saint Francis, and the Angel" won second place for the Dana Literary Award 2015. "The Tall Blonde" was a
finalist in Glimmer Train's New Writer's award 2007. "Losing Chloe" was a finalist in The New Letters Fiction Award 2004.
I am self taught, have never attended college or taken any writing classes. Some of these stories are based on dreams
I've had or characters who just sort of take over my mind and kindle my imagination.
