About & Contact
My poetry, fiction, essays, interviews, and reviews have appeared in a variety of online and print publications, including Mothering Magazine, The We'Moon Anthology: Love, SageWoman Magazine, LiteraryMama, Mamazine.com, MomWriter's Literary Magazine, MotherVerse Magazine, The Apple Valley Review, Flashquake, Modern Creative Life and many others. I've been teaching writing at the college level since 2000, and have facilitated creative writing workshops in elementary schools, high schools, prisons, and private organizations.
In 2008, I won a state grant as an Emerging Artist in Fiction via the Delaware Division of the Arts and gave public readings and performances of poetry, personal essay, and fiction at a series of local venues. I earned an MFA in Creative Writing from Goddard College in 2013. My current project is a novel following the trajectories of four women confronting their relationship to voice and trauma.
When I am not writing or teaching, I am reading: books--75 in 2017 and hope to top that number in 2018--and tarot cards, which I have been working with personally and professionally for twenty years. More information about my tarot and related events can be found HERE. I live at the edge of the woods in a little house packed with my teenage (and 20-something) children, three cats, and tumbledown stacks of books tucked away in every corner.
