Bio

I live in New Jersey. I have published two novels: The Garden of Fragile Things (Vagabondage Press, 2015) and Infestation: Bud McCracken and the War Against the Bugmen (Sinister Grin Press, 2016). In the summer of 2018, Sinister Grin Press will publish my contemporary fantasy novel Under the Bronze Moon. My short stories have appeared in The Del Sol Review, Duende, Encounters Magazine, 13 Horror, and others. I earned my MFA in Creative Writing at Fairleigh Dickinson University, and I teach first-year writing and literature at Rowan College at Gloucester County and Stockton University.
