I’m the author of the novel Whores on the Hill (Vintage Books, a division of Random House). My short stories have appeared in places like Alaska Quarterly Review, Glimmer Train, Blackbird and Mid-American Review.
I also edited the anthology Altared: Bridezillas, Bewilderment, Big Love, Breakups, and What Women Really Think About Contemporary Weddings (Anchor Books, a division of Random House).
I’ve been awarded a Theresa Pollak Award for Excellence in the Arts from Richmond Magazine. I’ve taught creative writing at Virginia Commonwealth University, as well as a variety of writing classes at the University of Richmond, the Hand Workshop and the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts. Currently, I’m a features writer for the Richmond Times-Dispatch and Richmond.com where I cover Arts, Entertainment and Events.
I’m working on several new projects.
I live with my husband and two sons in Richmond, Virginia.
