RoomsAreFilled“An ode to truth, the departed who are never truly gone, and the resilient human heart.”

–Susan Henderson, bestselling author of Up from the Blue


Thank you for stopping by. I’m happy to announce the publication of my debut novel, The Rooms Are Filled, coming on April 22, 2014 from She Writes Press. Find it on Goodreads. Preorder through IndieBound, or on Amazon or Barnes & Noble.

It is loosely based on a family story, one told to me by my father. Read more here.

If your book club would like a visit, please go to the contact page and we can schedule a meeting via Skype or, in the Chicago area, in person. Thanks again.


“As you read about the seemingly quiet, Midwestern lives of the people of The Rooms Are Filled, you will suddenly realize that you desperately want them to get everything they’re hoping for.”

–John Warner, Chicago Tribune columnist and author of The Funny Man
