Writer, Poet, Playwright, Literary Translator. Author of THE SNAKE IN THE VOKDA BOTTLE and JOURNEY INTO THE BACKWATERS OF THE HEART
I am a writer, poet, playwright, and literary translator. I teach Creative Writing and English. I earned a MFA in Writing from Columbia University School of the Arts, and a second MFA in Nonfiction from the University of New Hampshire. I've been awarded two Fulbright grants in Creative Writing and a National Endowment for the Arts grant in Literature, as well as a PEN Translation Fund award. I've written a novel, THIS IS NOT MY SKY and four works of literary nonfiction: LENIN'S HEAD ON A PLATTER, JOURNEY INTO THE BACKWATERS OF THE HEART, THE SNAKE IN THE VODKA BOTTLE and DIGGING A HOLE TO CHINA. My plays have been staged in Vilnius, Lithuania and in Hong Kong. I translate poetry, prose, and drama from Lithuanian.
