I am a member of the Jazz Journalists Association, former contributor to Cleveland Scene Magazine and Jazz Inside Magazine, and was the books columnist for Nectar Magazine. My fiction has appeared in various print and online journals, and my novel The Starlight Line, will be published by Red Giant Books in fall 2014. I was awarded a 2012 Creative Workforce Fellowship in Literature in Cuyahoga County, Ohio.
