Author bio

I used to have nightmares that I was back in creative writing workshop in college and had written nothing all semester with a big, looming portfolio deadline. In these dreams I lived in a dorm room with my two young daughters (is it any wonder I did no writing!?). These dreams have stopped lately, now that I'm actually writing again. I'm a part-time writer and editor, plus a full-time mom, housekeeper, and homeschool teacher. I've loved words all of my life and have worked with them in many capacities: as a journalist and newspaper editor, an author and freelance writer, a business communications writer, and also as a musical theater performer. I love telling stories that are approachable, authentic, and a little unexpected. "Tell the truth through whichever veil comes to hand – but tell it." - Zadie Smith “We tell ourselves stories in order to live...We look for the sermon in the suicide... We live entirely, especially if we are writers, by the imposition of a narrative line upon disparate images, by the ‘ideas’ with which we have learned to freeze the shifting phantasmagoria which is our actual experience.” - Joan Didion "A book must be the axe for the frozen sea inside us." -Franz Kafka
