Over the years, she has sold cameras, ladies shoes, water filters, antiques, her wedding dress and an old van. She's worked as a waiter, bartender, fundraiser, teacher, freelance writer and spindoctor, all of which continue to be a good source of material. Her work has appeared in anthologies such as Sex and Sensibility and American Girls out on the Town, and in a variety of literary magazines, including One Story, Glimmer Train, StoryQuarterly, Indiana Review, ACM (Another Chicago Magazine), and The Kenyon Review. She won the Pearl magazine 2002 Fiction Prize for her short story, "Back on Earth." Stories from her collection, Bulletproof Girl, have been anthologized in Glimmer Train's Where Love is Found: 24 Tales of Connection and in Hourglass Books' forthcoming Peculiar Pilgrims. Her story,  The Music Your Never Hear is included in New Stories from the South: The Year's Best, 2006. She lives in Greensboro with her husband and two young daughters.
