I've been writing for what feels like my whole life, beginning with my first epic novel, 'The Lost Dog,' which I started in fifth grade at P.S. 14 in Queens, New York. Sadly, it remains unfinished, but I'm sure my mom still has it. As an adult, I've written articles, essays, and short stories which have appeared or are forthcoming in numerous publications including Salon, Guernica, Redbook, Real Simple, Time Out New York, and The Common. As a producer, I won a George Foster Peabody Award for a documentary about HIV that I wrote for MTV. My short story, "The Pursuit of Joe Kahn," was nominated for a Pushcart Prize in fiction, and I've been awarded fellowships in fiction by the Edward Albee Foundation, Jentel, the Millay Colony, Fundación Valparaíso, and the Constance Saltonstall Foundation, as well as the American Antiquarian Society in Worcester, MA. I live in Brooklyn with my husband and my two daughters. 'The Movement of Stars' is my first novel, and I'm very happy that it will be published by Riverhead Books on April 18, 2013.
