My New York Times essay went up today — it is by far the most personal thing I’ve ever published. Pride and terror!
I just learned that I received an author fellowship to attend the MVICW Summer Writer’s Conference in June!
The fellowship was awarded based on personal essays, so this may be an opportunity to stretch out of my reporter self. Looking forward to learning more about this community and seeing what happens…
Last week, I signed a contract with Arcadia Publishing and The History Press to publish my oral history! I’m so thrilled that they are taking a chance on me and this project.
The book will be out in late 2021.
Welcome to my new site! You can find a few of my articles here, and possibly an occasional blog post.
