She has forthcoming reviews inPleaides and Green Mountains Review. Her short story, “Flashpoint,” will appeared in the debut issue ofTINGE Magazine (April 2011). If forced to choose only three books, she would recommend Jeffrey Eugenides’s Middlesex, Jhumpa Lahiri’s Interpreter of Maladies, and The Girl in the Flammable Skirt by Aimee Bender. She often wishes she could dream through the beautiful, kaleidoscopic lens of Bender’s work.
