I'm a writer currently at work on a book about the secret life of socks, due out from Bloomsbury's Object Lessons Series in 2016.

My short stories and essays have appeared in Tin HouseAgni, the Gettysburg ReviewCrazyhorse, the New England Review, the Raritan Review, and elsewhere. Among the awards and recognitions I've been fortunate to have received are a scholarship to the Bread Loaf Writers’ Conference, a P.E.N. New England Discovery Award, and an Artist’s Grant from the Massachusetts Cultural Council.

Recently, I finished THE 27th LETTER OF THE ALPHABET, a memoir investigating the mechanics of memory and the half-life of rage in a family haunted by mental illness, addiction, and incest. For a full description of this project, please click here.
