I preach every Sunday at St. David’s in Richmond, Virginia, and from time to time am invited to preach elsewhere. Here are a few of my favorites.

Upcoming Book

A grieving middle-aged pastor mistakes an inherited statue of the Virgin Mary for a warrior, leading her to reflect on her issues with motherloss and infertility so she can keep her church.


You can find links to essays, poems, and book reviews here. I also review books for Kirkus, but can’t tell you what or when!
