I’m the author of Those Like Us: Stories (Stephen F. Austin State University Press), You’re the Tower: Essays (Yellow Flag Press), and A Guest of the Program: Stories, which won the 2017 Iron Horse Literary Review Chapbook Competition. I am an assistant professor at McNeese State University, where I teach in the MFA program and coordinate the online MA in creative writing program. My writing has appeared widely in magazines and journals including Third Coast, Brevity, Baltimore Review, Bellevue Literary Review, and War, Literature, and the Arts. I am the co-nonfiction editor for Midway Journal. I live happily in Lake Charles, LA with my wife and daughter.
