Introduction I'm a freelance writer living in Ashland, Oregon. My stories and poems have appeared in Uncle John's Bathroom Reader, Prick of the Spindle, the Anthology of the Awkward and Troubles Swapped for Something Fresh: Manifestos and Unmanifestos, and numerous other magazines, newspapers and websites. My creative nonfiction story, Stranded in Kosmas, was nominated for inclusion in The Best of Creative Nonfiction Volume 3 by W.W. Norton.
