About this author

My debut short story collection Wifeshopping won the 2007 Bakeless Prize for fiction from the Bread Loaf Writers' Conference and will be published by Houghton Mifflin in July 2008. Stories from it have been published in Gulf Coast, Mississippi Review, The Journal, The Pinch, and elsewhere. Excerpts, reviews, and (coming soon) some video are posted at my website .

I teach creative writing at South Dakota State University and am a contributing editor for Fiction Writers Review where I review books, interview authors, and write about the craft of fiction and the writing life in the essay series Quotes and Notes. Hope you'll join me there.
