My Agent's Info:  I am represented by Ginger Knowlton at Curtis Brown.


I am a night person who believes that mornings were meant to be slept through, a chocolate lover, and a hiker. I walk every day, and hike on weekends when I can. I live in the Philadelphia area.

I have written and published short fiction, poems, essays, and novels. I had my first short story published when I was seventeen, but it took me many years to write well with consistency, and I continue to learn more every year. My short fiction has appeared in literary magazines such as Willow Review, flashquake, and North American Review, and in some anthologies. My short nonfiction has appeared most recently in Creative Nonfiction. (See the “Publications” and "Reviews and Resources" tabs on this site for more.) My contemporary young-adult novels are The Secret Year, Try Not to Breathe, and Until It Hurts to Stop. I've also written a non-fiction book, Loner in the Garret: A Writer's Companion.
