Thanks so much for visiting my site!
When not reading, writing, or teaching, I enjoy painting, kayaking, hiking, dancing, and exploring New York’s Capital Region with my fiance Stephen.
I'm an author and English professor from Lockport, NY and a publisher with 50/50 Press.
Coming out in Summer 2017, my newest novel The Misadventures of Marvin Miller will feature the hilarious escapades of a boy trying to chase after his first crush. Once he finally catches up with the girl of his dreams, Marvin realizes not all his friends approve. Click "Books for Kids" above for a free sample!
My first book, Always, Jessie, is a novel inspired by my battle with eating disorders and exercise addiction and the treatment I received as a young adult. The book was published by Saguaro Books in 2016 and is available at Amazon, Barnes and Noble, and other select retailers. Click "Books for Teens" above for a free sample and links to purchase!
My other work has been featured in Pilcrow & Dagger, WordHaus, The Flash Fiction Press, Dying Dahlia Review, Asinine Poetry, Citron Review, and Gilded Serpent Magazine.
