What are you currently working on?

Twenty-six: A Memoir is about loss, grief, and rebuilding. It chronicles the story of my father's battle with a rare cancer and my motivation to run my first marathon for the American Cancer Society.

Have you ever been commerically or self-published?

I am a contributing writer for Au Courant Magazine. A few of my articles have been re-printed in the Triangle Downtowner Magazine. I've had a few poems and essays published in the Loras College Outlet, and I'm just now starting to submit work to other literary journals.

What type of writing are you most interested in?

Creative nonfiction

Do you have a website you would like to share with the group?

I have a blog about running:


I have an MFA in Creative and Professional Writing from Western Connecticut State University. Prior to attending grad school, I was a high school English teacher in Iowa. I recently moved from Minnesota to Raleigh, and I'm looking for my next step!
