I graduated from Harvard in 2000 with an honors degree in philosophy and have been writing novels ever since. I also occasionally write essays, book reviews, and short stories. I co-founded and served as Editorial Director of a literary studio called Plympton, which aims to make the digital age a golden age for literature. I have an advanced degree in counseling psychology, and in my training as a psychotherapist specialized in patients with severe mental illness including schizophrenia, bipolar disorder, and major depressive disorder. Now I primarily work with clients as an editor and writing coach. I live in Berkeley, California.
