Introduction I grew up in Spokane, Washington, but I have way too much of a wandering spirit and it wasn't long before I left. I earned my M.A. in Creative Writing from FSU in 2003, where I worked under Pulitzer-winner Robert Olen Butler. After that, I joined the Peace Corps in Guyana, South America, then moved to Hawai`i, where I taught college-level English. If you want to know more about me, check out my Peace Corps Blog!
