Although I've read books for much of my life, I didn't start writing until the beginning of college. It took me a long time to realize that writers create books. Like trees or rocks, books seemed to be a normal feature of the environment that trickled into the world from some endless source.
For me writing became a way to imitate all the authors I've read and cobble together my own voice to make sense of the world. I've written for a variety of publications including news organizations, literary journals, and university websites.
Highlights of my work are shown below.
