My Story

I spent my life moving around the state of Wyoming, until my parents settled in Sheridan, just south of the Montana border. Once there, I split time between Sheridan and Kemmerer in southwestern Wyoming, where my family has raised sheep for five generations. I attended the University of Wyoming and received degrees in International Studies and Spanish Literature. Eventually and with some prodding, I remembered the call I felt as a child to become a writer and attended New Mexico State University to study fiction. I just graduated with my MFA in Creative Writing from NMSU and returned to Wyoming, where I now teach, edit freelance, and write. I have several projects in the works, including a collection of short stories and a novel, and am actively sending out submissions to journals. My work has appeared or is forthcoming in Burnt Pine MagazineCigar City Poetry Journal, Barren MagazineThe Shore, Tupelo Quarterly, South Dakota Review, EcoTheo Review, and other journals.

Wyoming is my debut collection of poetry and is now available from Finishing Line Press. Work from the collection has been nominated for the Pushcart Prize.

I am the owner of Writing the West, LLC., a private editing service. See below for more information!
