An excerpt from my working novel, Where Willows Take Root, was published in The Saturday Evening Post-Great American Fiction 2021, and another excerpt was a Glimmer Train Press honorable mention. I studied creative writing at Cleveland State University and Baldwin Wallace College, and have worked with NYT Bestselling Authors, Karen Joy Fowler, and Caroline Leavitt. One of my short stories was a finalist for the Perigee Publication for the Arts and three other short stories were finalists for The Fish Short Story Prize. My thriller, Anonymous (Loconeal Select), won the Eric Hoffer Book Award and was a finalist for both the Next Generation Indie Book Award and the Reader’s Favorite Book Award.
