About meMy debut novel, The Secrets We Kept, is out September 3, 2019 from Alfred A. Knopf (US); it will be translated into 29 languages.

I received me MFA from the Michener Center for Writers at the University of Texas. I studied political science at American University in Washington, D.C. and international development in Namibia and South Africa. Prior to writing fiction, I worked as a political campaign consultant.

My writing has appeared in The Southern Review, The Hudson Review, Crazyhorse, and more.

About my libraryI love all books, but find myself gravitating most toward literary fiction, historical fiction, the classics, poetry, political nonfiction, and history.


Favorite authorsJohn le Carré, J. M. Coetzee, Joan Didion, Anthony Doerr, Louise Erdrich, Patricia Highsmith, Edward P. Jones, Nicole Krauss, Toni Morrison, Boris Pasternak, Zadie Smith (Shared favorites)
