So pleased to have won the Beacon Street Prize for my piece "I'm Trying to You I'm Sorry," judged by the very awesome best-selling author Susannah Cahalan. Cahalan says: “The essay was poetic, haunting, disturbing, and powerful. The imagery, word play, and propulsive rhythm of language gripped me from the first paragraph to its gorgeous last sentence. This was a highly unusual and unforgettable essay.”

An editor wrote this to me when he accepted a recent piece for TheOffingMag.com. What's interesting to me is how this kind of sounds like a description of my actual personality.. "vivid and withholding."Isn't it something when someone "gets" you? When you realize your art is actually maybe all yours?
