I’m the author of Those Like Us, a collection of interlocking short fiction that was published in 2011 by Stephen F. Austin State University Press and When You’re Down By the River, a fiction chapbook from Batcat Press. I’m an assistant professor of creative writing at McNeese State University, where I will be directing the fiction side of McNeese’s new low-residency MA in Creative Writing (beginning Fall 2016). My fiction, creative non-fiction, and poetry have appeared widely in magazines and journals including Third Coast, Baltimore Review, Bellevue Literary Review, Grist, and War, Literature, and the Arts. I am nonfiction editor for Midway Journal, an assistant fiction editor for Fifth Wednesday Journal, and a fiction reader for Electric Literature‘s Recommended Reading series. I live happily in Lake Charles, LA with my wife and daughter.
