September 2015

St. Davids, PA – I am the author of The Playgroup (part of the Gemma Open Door novella series to promote adult literacy), the novel My Life as a Girl (Random House), and numerous short stories, reviews, articles and essays that have appeared most recently in Creative Nonfiction, Cleaver, and The Philadelphia Inquirer. I’ve twice been named a Discipline Winner in Fiction by the Pew Fellowships in the Arts, and have been awarded a fiction fellowship by the Pennsylvania Council on the Arts. My essays have been nominated for a Pushcart Prize and selected as contest finalists by Narrative, Fourth Genre, and Writers at Work. At the Independence National Park Archaeology Lab, designated by Michele Obama as a Preserve America Steward, I have logged 920 hours of volunteer service as a lab technician.
