I write stories about dirt: the dirt that lives under our fingernails, those stories from our childhood we can't escape, the land we came from that still lives in the enamel of our teeth. Sometimes those stories are tiny moments, and sometimes they're more like historic recursion, the repetitions of our families
and our national histories. I write flash fiction, short stories, and novels that can't seem to outrun General Sherman or the enduring effects of the Civil War. In the daytime, you can find me putting my storytelling skills to work as the marketing director for a digital marketing agency in Kansas City.
