I am a former pediatrician who stopped practicing medicine because of chronic pain. My poetry book The Horizontal Poet (Zeitgeist Press, 2011) won a 2012 Lambda Literary Award. My fiction chapbook Mixing Tracks (Gertrude Press, 2009) and poetry chapbook The Underwater Hospital (Zeitgeist Press, 2006) also won awards. My fiction and poetry have appeared in Scholastic Magazine, Yale Medicine, Bellevue Literary Review, Canary, Assaracus and elsewhere. My work was nominated three times each for the Pushcart and Sundress Best of the Net anthologies, won the Goodreads Poetry Contest three times, and won various other awards. I live in Oakland, California.
