My newest essay, “Patterning,” appears in the current issue of Sycamore Review, Vol. 30.1. The essay was a finalist for the 2018 Wabash Prize in Nonfiction. “Patterning” explores my ambivalence toward religion, the responsibilities of motherhood, and the ways we make meaningful choices.

This year marks the thirtieth anniversary of publication for Sycamore Review, the internationally acclaimed literary journal for Purdue University. The issue includes the prizewinning essay, “Epiphany,” by Jo-Anne Berelowitz and the Runner Up, “Listening Room,” by Jeff Albers. I am pleased that my essay has found a home among such thoughtful work.
