I'm the author of THE SUNSHINE WHEN SHE’S GONE (Henry Holt and co. 2013) a novel about a marital crisis that ensues upon the birth of a new baby.  The New York Public Library chose the title story of my collection-in-progress, “Evidence,”  for Stories on The MTA, a Digital Archive, 2019.

 The winner of a Pushcart Prize Special Mention and The Columbia Fiction Award, my fiction, non-fiction and poetry have appeared in Catapult, The Rumpus, New England Review, The Huffington Post, The Coachella Review and other publications. 

 After studying at Sarah Lawrence College and the Brooklyn College, CUNY MFA Program, I taught writing at Eugene Lange College, NYU, The University of Chicago and The Art Institute of Chicago for over 20 years. I live in Chicago with my family and am working on a new novel.
