My creative work has won awards and been published in newspapers, magazines and literary journals; my memoir, California Calling: A self-Interrogation, was published in 2018 by Hawthorne Books. My writing has been anthologized, including most recently in the 2015 Love & Profanity: A Collection of True, Tortured, Wild, Hilarious, Concise, and Intense Tales of Teenage Life.
