Where You Can Find Me Elsewhere
Here’s what I’ve been up to and where you can find my work:
Well, I’m definitely not sleeping too much, that’s for sure. Here are some places you might know me from and links to places I’ve had shorter work published.
Water~Stone Review is publishing “Consolation,” a revision of the piece I read at Magers & Quinn for the Flash Nonfiction Jamboree. I am really excited about this piece and this placement. A reading from Water~Stone Review will be held on Friday, November 6 at Hamline University at 7 PM in Sundin Hall. Check back for more details.
Ongoing and Previous (from most recent to least):
Cinema Atroce at Bitter Critic:
April 2015: AWP! I read at SubText on Thursday, April 9 at 7 PM in connection with my publication in Prairie Gold: An Anthology of the American Heartland. My essay, “Cold Feet,” deals with conflicted feelings and circulatory issues (of the bodily variety). To check out the book or purchase copies, click here or contact me. I’ll even sign it!
I have a few pieces out for submission, which I should hear about by the end of this year/early next year. Check back for more updates.
Minimum Fare: I am starring in nine episodes of Minimum Fare on YouTube and more will be added soon. They include: Orienteering, Carl the Cat, Turning a Corner, Nicknames, Red Prius, Mr. Awesome, Drive Thru Therapy, Car Puker, and my personal favorite, Motion Sickness. Don’t watch if you actually get motion sickness…
BNW Friday Night Stage Match series: Finished as of December 2014 😦 This makes me so sad. It was really fun while it lasted. Thank you to all of you who came out and supported me on this. I’m exploring other opportunities for improv in the area, but nothing will be quite the same.
October 2014: The Raynaud’s Association re-published my essay “Cold Feet” online, and it’s had over 1,000 shares on Facebook and nearly 500 “Likes”! Can we make it 1,100 shares? And 550 “Likes”?
July 2014: My essay “Cold Feet” was published in Prairie Gold: An Anthology of the American Heartland. It’s a beautiful collection, and I’m thrilled to be included in it.
April 2014: On their website, the Star Tribune published a haiku of mine relating to potholes. It was also published in print! See photo below.
Also April 2014: I read a chapter from my Choose Your Own Adventure Dating Memoir at J.Arthur’s Coffee Shop in Roseville as part of the Cracked Walnut “It’s a Wonderful Life” reading.

Summer/Fall 2012: my essay, “The Things We Keep,” was published by rock, paper, scissors, the student literary journal at Hamline. See image below. The journal really is a thing of beauty, maybe I’ll let you borrow my copy. Or you can purchase your own.
