wordpressheadshotI grew up in Milwaukee, Wisconsin where I attended an all-girls’ high school.

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.

  1. Hi I also go to an All girls High School in Milwaukee, Wisconsin and found this book very interesting. My school is also on a hill.


  2. I just finished Whores on the Hill in almost one sitting (had to take a break to paddle the James on this fine Sat. morning). I don’t normally email authors, but I loved the book. You captured that crazy, magical, mercurial time perfectly. I am 46, went to a small private school school on the Southside (of Richmond) and dated St. Gertrude’s girls; so the book really took me back. Again, thanks for a great read!
