I write poetry, fiction, essays, and a blog. I write on napkins in restaurants, too. My work has appeared in WORDPEACE, riverbabble, The Squaw Review, Milvia Street, The New Voices of the American West, Temba Tupu! Walking Naked, and elsewhere.
I support fledgling and experienced writers, performers and public speakers in telling their stories. I am a college instructor, tutor, writing workshop leader, writing coach, and have been called a writer’s “midwife” by students and clients. I help writers build confidence, strengthen craft and develop audience awareness. I love dark chocolate, yoga, T’ai chi, walking, hiking, dance and music.
