I’m the author of World Gone Missing, forthcoming from Regal House Publishing in October, 2017. My stories have won the Alligator Juniper National Fiction Award and been nominated for Best New American Voices, Best American Essays, 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 work has appeared in literary journals and anthologies such as The Los Angeles Review, Timber, Jabberwock Review, Road Story, Arroyo Literary Review, Under the Sun Magazine, and elsewhere. I co-founded Babylon Salon, a decade-long San Francisco literary series, and teach creative writing at The Writers Grotto and UC Berkeley.
