I’m a fiction writer and essayist in Seattle, and a 2018 NEA Literature Fellow. My pieces have won the Pearl Editor’s Prize, the Tobias Wolff Fiction Award, the Potomac Review Fiction Prize, and others, and appear in Narrative, The Millions, Salon, The Weeklings, and elsewhere. I was the librettist for four operas performed by the Houston and Seattle Operas, and the first girl to win the Washington State Geography Bee, back in ’94. Can’t top that, really.

I’m at work on a memoir—time and sleep be damned.
