I'm a writer from Ireland living in Charlottesville, Virginia. I have an MFA from the University of Virginia, where I taught fiction for two years and edited Meridian magazine. I teach at Writer House, a non-profit writing center in Charlottesville, and am an assistant director at the Young Writers Workshop, a residential summer camp for teenage writers. My stories, essays, reviews and interviews have appeared in The Stinging Fly, LitHub, Tammy, Passages North, The South Circular, Colony, Don't Do It magazine and Meridian. I'm at work on a collection of essays.
