001-La-Vie-PhotoI’m a writer, a translator, and a reader.

My first novel, Fog Island Mountains (Tantor, 2014), won the 2013 Christopher Doheny Award from the Center for Fiction and Audible. Find more information about the novel here.

My second novel, Unfurled, was published in Oct 2018. You can order it on Indiebound (to support your local book store!) and also here

I work as the Translations Editor for Necessary Fiction. And with two other marvelous writers, Sara Johnson Allen and Laura McCune Poplin, I am a founder of and instructor at the L’ATELIER WRITERS WORKSHOP AND RETREAT.
