I’m the author of World Gone Missing, to be released by Regal House Press in 2017. Stories in this book have won the Alligator Juniper National Fiction Award, as well as nominations 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 been appeared in literary journals and anthologies such as The Los Angeles Review, Timber, Road Story, Under the Sun, and elsewhere. I am the co-founder of Babylon Salon, a long running literary series in San Francisco, and teach creative writing at The Writers Grotto and UC Berkeley.
