IMG_4467-EditI 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 RumpusThe 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 Dailyn+1The Washington PostReal Simple, Women’s Running and ESPNW. This fall I’ll be teaching at the Westport Writers’ Workshop.
