photo by my son

I’ve lived in New Jersey my whole life. I grew up in Cranford and have been bouncing back and forth between Elizabeth and Newark for a while. I’m currently living in Newark with my son.

I write different things like prose poetry, dating/relationship stories, art and culture essays, literary scholarship/analysis, etc. I also have a blog on here about the books I’m reading.

I wrote Back Like I Never Left, a book about dating as a single mother.
