I live in Connecticut with my husband and two children. For eight years, I taught high school English and I’m currently working on a book about motherhood and literature. Some of my essays have appeared in Guernica, The Rumpus, The Millions, Electric Literature, Carve, The American Scholar and the Ploughshares Blog. I’ve also written some pieces about long-distance running and teaching (my other fascinations) for JSTOR Daily, n+1, The Washington Post, Real Simple, Women’s Running and ESPNW. This fall I’ll be teaching at the Westport Writers’ Workshop.
