I'm the author of three books: That Demon Life and Professed, novels, and Long Time Ago Good, a story collection. My work has been published in two dozen or so journals, including Callaloo, Iron Horse Literary Review, and Short Story, and I've won the Dobie-Paisano Fellowship, awarded by the University of Texas at Austin and the Texas Institute of Letters.

I'm now Assistant Professor of English at Pittsburg State University, where I teach creative writing and literature
