Welcome

I’m the author of World Gone Missing, coming from Regal House Press in 2017. Stories in this book have won the Alligator Juniper National Fiction Award and been nominated for Best New American Voices and the Pushcart Prize. I co-authored 642 Things to Write About Me and 642 Things That I Love (About You), published by Chronicle Books in 2016. My stories and essays have appeared in literary journals and anthologies such as The Los Angeles Review, Timber, Jabberwock Review, Road Story, Under the Sun, and elsewhere. I co-founded Babylon Salon, a long running literary series in San Francisco, and teach creative writing at The Writers Grotto and UC Berkeley.

You can read some of my writing on the “Awards and Publications” page. I’d love to hear from your thoughts.

In a time when worldwide Clever Competitions are in full display, she showcases the struggles pumping through all our veins.” -Joshua Mohr, SF Chronicle best-selling author of three novels, most recently Damascus
