I’m the author of World Gone Missing, to be released in 2017 by Regal House Press. 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 (Chronicle Books 2016). My stories, essays, and poems have been published widely in literary journals and anthologies such as Jabberwock Review, Dogwood Journal, Timber, Arroyo Literary Review, Road Story, and Under the Sun. I co-founded Babylon Salon, a long running literary series in San Francisco, and teach creative writing at The Writers Grotto and UC Berkeley.
