I recently completed a memoir called The Twenty-Seventh Letter of the Alphabet. Twelve years in the writing, it investigates the mechanics of memory in a family haunted by mental illness, addiction, and incest.
My short stories and essays have appeared in Tin House, Agni, the Gettysburg Review, Crazyhorse, 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.
