Writing fiction remains my greatest challenge--and my greatest passion. I have published short stories in print and online in literary journals such as Partisan Review, Fiction, Willows Wept Review, and StoryQuarterly, My short story "Livia" was nominated for a Pushcart Prize. You can read an excerpt here. "From Blue Pine" is rooted in the mountains of the state I grew up in, Colorado.  

My first novel, Choke Creek, is based on the Sand Creek Massacre, which also took place in Colorado.

My new novel, Wolf Constellation, a novel that covers four generations and one hundred years in a family, is forthcoming in the fall of 2018.

Currently I am at work on a new novel set in 1918 that addresses racism and inequality called Baltimore Divide.
