I love books. I love everything about books. (Except moving the 1,000 boxes they take up every time I change addresses.)
As a writer, I have both written books (HOUSEWIFERY, dancing girl press, 2013) and written about books and literature for places like Ploughshares and Gently Read Literature.
As an editor, I have worked at weekly newspapers, national literary magazines (cream city review) and other publications.
As a teacher, I have taught writing and literature everywhere from the University of Wisconsin to Warren Wilson College, with a lot of stops in between.
In my spare time? I read, of course.
