Adjusting Status

I’m currently working on a linked collection of short stories, Adjusting Status, which is inspired by my two years working in an immigration law firm in New York. Despite the public dialogue about immigration in the U.S., it’s not all fences and Mexico—and this book aims to explore some of the subtler ways U.S. immigration policy affects both immigrants and citizens.
