Hometown: Spring Green, WI
August 29, 2013
Rural fiction. Kind of a farmland epic, tracing some of my family's stories and crafting some new ones.
Just short fiction -- story about a heartbroken soldier, published in an anthology of Nashville writers. (Nashville was my most recent stop before DC.)
I grew up in Wisconsin in farm country. My first job outside the family business was in a newsroom, and I wrote for daily newspapers all around the state before moving to Nashville. There I covered business and politics before getting hired by a member of Congress -- one of the good guys, I promise.
I'm a journalist-turned-propagandist from Wisconsin, polishing a novel about home and mulling a prequel. Politics by day, (attempts at) literature on the side for now.
