Author bio

A native Appalachian with a passion for the written and spoken word, I spent most of my life in SE Kentucky, which inspires much of my writing. After graduating from Berea College, I worked as a journalist and PR coordinator before becoming a high school teacher and theater director, retiring in 2022 to pursue my life-long dream of writing. I now reside in East Tennessee. My short story “Southbound” won Reedsy contest #168 (Oct. 2022). My poetry has been featured in Pine Mountain Sand and Gravel and Northern Appalachian Review (2023). A one-act play, "The Magic Lounge," won 2nd Place in the Kentucky Theatre Association Roots of the Bluegrass New Play Festival (Nov. 2023): it is based on "Cicero '59," a Reedsy short story featured in contest #186.
