“Joan” wins the conger beasley jr. award in nonfiction at new letters!

I am so thrilled to share that my essay “Joan” has won this year’s New Letters award in nonfiction! This essay is close to my heart; it recounts the 1972 Rocky Mountain National Park search for Joan Jardine and Fred Stone, and explores the emotional and psychological burdens SAR personnel face. I am so proud that this important topic is getting recognized at such a prestigious publication! Thank you to judge Heather Sellers and the editorial team at New Letters!

  1. When will your essay “Joan” be available to read? I knew Joanie In high school and am interested in reading your account of the search and rescue that was undertaken on her behalf. Her story has forever haunted me. Thanks for your time.
    Best,
