I like to think of self as a verb and, for me, one goal of writing is to capture the self in motion. I’m intrigued with the ways our interior landscapes flow into or collide with the outside world. I’m fascinated with what we believe, whether we know we believe it or not. I have a deep belief in the primacy of doubt and an abiding conviction that great wisdom informs very bad movies.

My work has been published in The Southeast Review, storySouth, The North Carolina Literary Review, Red Fez, and Contrary, among others. My novel, Cloud Diary, is forthcoming from C&R Press in Spring 2018. My short story collection, The Naming of Ghosts, is published by Press 53. I’m a winner of the Lorian Hemingway Short Story Prize.

I’m co-owner of Scuppernong Books in Greensboro, NC.
