Tell us a little about your writing career.

I write for a consulting firm to keep my fingers moving, and before that I was in journalism. The writing closest to my heart, though, has always been short fiction and essays.

Who are your literary influences?

Lydia Davis, Raymond Carver, Gabriel Garcia Marquez, Jonathan Franzen, Dave Eggers, Sarah Manguso

What do you hope to gain from our monthly workshop?

Writing all day for work makes it difficult to stay disciplined about writing on my own time, so I try to find ways to add structure, starting points and a community of fellow writers.


I'm a newcomer to Indy, a Southern gal who has made her home in the Midwest (most recently Chicago). I'm interested in meeting other writers in the area.
