I was a Summer 2020 writer-in-residence at Woodlawn/Pope Leighey House; finalist in The Asia Literary Review’s 2018 Essay Competition; non-fiction scholar at the 2017 Virginia Quarterly Review Writers’ Conference; 2017 and 2013 Jenny McKean Moore Community Workshop Fellow in Poetry and Short Fiction, respectively.
I have lived and worked in the Washington D.C. Metro Area since 1975, shortly after my family fled Saigon, South Vietnam, near the end of the Vietnam War.
