I am a writer, teacher, and editor, currently living in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. My fiction writing is primarily surrealism, magic realism, and literary fantasy and science fiction. I also write nonfiction, and worked as a journalist in the United States and the Republic of Ireland before earning my MFA in fiction and beginning my teaching career. I have been teaching for 13 years and have worked extensively with high school students, college students, and adults, teaching all types of writing from creative writing to professional writing. I am currently a Visiting Lecturer at the University of Pittsburgh and also edit a wide range of work. I am a graduate of Yale University and the Iowa Writers’ Workshop.
