Author Bio: I grew up in Santa Monica and graduated from the University of California, Berkeley, with a degree in English.

My fiction has been published in Epoch (Cornell University), Prism International (University of British Columbia, Vancouver), Cimarron Review, Hobart, Word Riot, In Posse Review, Storyglossia, The Summerset Review, and others.

My novella, "A Season of Turbulence" was published in print in The Conium Review.

I was hired to write the film, "Murder in Fashion," which played at festivals and theaters in 2010 and was reviewed in the NY Times and L.A. Times.

My short story, "The Spirit Upwelling,” was a winner of the Eric Hoffer Prose Competition from over two thousand entries, and appeared in the anthology, Best New Writing 2011. It also won a fellowship to a writing seminar in St. Petersburg, Russia, sponsored by Walrus Magazine.

My screenplay, "The Dressmaker's Daughter" was a top ten finalist in the 2010 Bruce Geller Screenwriting Competition.

I adapted the book, "Kiss Tomorrow Goodbye: The Barbara Payton Story," by John O'Dowd. Now titled "Bad Blonde," it is in development with producers Barrett Stuart and Ira Besserman.

I adapted my short story originally published in Cornell University's journal, Epoch. The story and screenplay are both under option to director Brad Furman ("The Lincoln Lawyer" and "Runner, Runner").

My novella, "Road Kills," was a Chesterfield semifinalist.
