I’m the author of the novel Whores on the Hill (Vintage Original). My short stories have appeared in places like Alaska Quarterly Review, Glimmer Train, Hayden’s Ferry Review, 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).
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. Currently, I’m a staff writer for the Richmond Times-Dispatch where I cover arts and entertainment.
I live with my husband and two sons in Richmond, Virginia.
