I’m ecstatic to announce that I am now represented by Michael Sterling of Folio Literary Management in New York City! Michael will be representing me not just for my first two books, but hopefully for many years to come. Both he and his agency seem like the best fit for my current work and my future goals as a writer, so I’m very excited. For the past few years I’ve been trying to lay the foundation for a long-term writing career, and it’s rewarding to be taking this next step.
A big thanks to all the people who have helped me improve my writing and who have supported me along the way. You know who you are.

I’m also delighted to announce that my short story “Hope” has been accepted for publication by Michigan Quarterly Review, one of my favorite magazines, and definitely one of the most respected literary publications in the country! The story will appear in their summer issue.

I’m very happy to find out that my former professor and mentor at Boston University’s MFA program, author Ha Jin, has been elected to the American Academy of Arts and Letters. Ha Jin’s work was one of the main reasons I applied to B.U.’s program. After studying under him and relying on him still for guidance, I can honestly say I’ve seldom met a more humble, approachable, and brilliant literary mind. News of Ha Jin’s election can be found here.
