I am a writer, freelance ghost editor (for television and print), MFA candidate, teacher, and worst mother of the year.
I have edited four award winning University anthologies both in America and abroad and an essay I helped edit is currently in the 2012 Best American Essays. I was a Glimmer Train New Writer Finalist for my story "Kicking Toward the Sun" and Columbia University award winner for my short story "The Language of Tires". I have been published in various print and online journals, and have read many stories at big Universities and tiny bars all over the USA and England.
I am not here to wax anyone into happiness. I read thoroughly, ask questions I think you need to answer, and am not known to sugar coat anything. If you think your writing is carved into gold, submit it to a literary magazine and have that be the end of it. I believe in positive feedback, and honestly love writing. I don't do disclaimers. You can say "This isn't my best writing" all you want, but I will treat your writing as if you want it to be improved. I am not your mother--if you want someone to rub your back and make you a cup of tea and tell you that you can be anything you want to be, I am not the person you are looking for.
I am from New York. I make my home now in Austin, TX with my dog Colin Firth. I am currently working on my MFA thesis--a young adult book about growing up in The Hamptons.
