I received my MFA from Columbia University as a Richard Rogers fellow. Subsequently I worked as a story analyst at MGM and Universal Studios. My short stories have been published in a number of literary journals. Two of them have won the annual short fiction contest sponsored by the National League of American Pen Women. My work has also won the Hackney Literary Award for short fiction. I decided to write my first novel during an invitation-only workshop led by the ever-brilliant Justin Cronin. I have just launched that book— “The Art of Becoming Another Person Entirely” —through Amazon and Barnes & Noble. Writing my novel was a joy; trying to find readers willing to post a review on Amazon, far more challenging!
