I am a freelance writer currently living and working in Boulder, Colorado. I have a recently completed manuscript, This Ruined House, a novella-length work of lyrical nonfiction, that is currently making the rounds of publishing houses. While in progress, This Ruined House, was awarded the Money for Women/Barbara Deming Grant and a Writer's at Work fellowship. In addition to these awards, I have won awards for my fiction and poetry. My work has been published in a wide variety of literary journals, magazines and newspapers, as well as heard on NPR. In addition, I am a former Colorado Voices columnist for The Denver Post.
