My non-fiction, short stories and poetry appear in numerous publications in the U.S., UK, and Canada. I've a B.A. in English Literature from UCLA, and an M.A. in Creative Writing from California State University at Northridge. While attending UCLA, I was one of only twelve students -- and only undergraduate -- chosen to study with Robert Pinsky, former Poet Laureate of the United States. Two of my poems won first prize from The Evergreen Press nationwide poetry contest, and others won honorable mentions from the Los Angeles Poetry Festival and The Academy of American Poets. My poem Du Fu was nominated for a Rhysling award for Best Long Science Fiction Poem. My debut novel was a finalist in the CCC Great Novel contest.
