“Snakebit” in The Best American Essays 2017!

I’m over the moon! My essay “Snakebit,” originally published in The Threepenny Review, has been chosen for The Best American Essays 2017, edited by one of my literary heroes, Leslie Jamison. “Chasing Arrows,” published in New England Review, also received an honorable mention.

This is proof positive that a new writer can still gain entrance to the walled city without knowing the king. The anthology is due for general release next month and will be available at independent bookstores nationwide.

What an honor, what a thrill.
