Cobalt Volume 4 is now out in the world, and it contains not one but two of my pieces (finalists for the Zora Neale Hurston Fiction Prize and the Frank McCourt Creative Nonfiction Prize respectively), as well as a cornucopia of other great writing. Check it out here!
Great Divide is a novel about memory, the power of the past to shape and subsume the present, and the pressing, terrible need to escape the drowning force of history.
"A Fable" published in Monkeybicycle
"One day my grandfather was out driving. This was after the war, after my grandparents were married and living in Pennsylvania with my aunt Sarah, before my father was born. As he was driving, he became sure that he had hit something back along the road behind him, so he turned around to check."
