My major interest is fiction. My first book, In the Province of Saints, was voted one of the 10 best first novels of 2005 by Booklist. I published my second novel, This Magnificent Desolation, this year (2013). My work also has appeared in numerous magazines and journals. I teach creative writing and lead a senior workshop in poetry and prose fiction.
