On February 19, I was honored to read at Charlotte Center for the Literary Arts with three other 2019-2020 Literature Fellows of the North Carolina Arts Council. That’s me at the far left of the lineup with the inexplicably rosy cheeks. I read a piece from my historical novel Testimony, which will be out in fall 2020 from Bywater Books. Thanks to David Potorti of the NC Arts Council for curating and to Kathie Collins and Paul Reali of Charlotte Lit for hosting!

Yesterday, I attended the UNC Charlotte College of Liberal Arts and Sciences’ annual faculty recognition reception – honoring faculty members, full- and part-time, who published books, received awards, or garnered outside funding in 2017. My novel, The Ada Decades, boosted the numbers of books published by members of the English Department to seven – the most of any department! Here I am, posing proudly.
