Welcome! I am a writer, teacher, creator, and artist. For over five years, I've brought writing and creativity workshops across five states.
I presently live near enough to the Ohio River to hear barge traffic. Originally from South Bend, IN, I thrive with exploration of new forms of writing, art constructions, photography, gardening and much more. My personal writing includes fiction—one work is a novel based on direct experience with families who cope with autism. In May of this year, an anthology was released: Family Stories from the Attic.
Non-fiction and poetry also find their way into my world, as well. After being prompted by four extended family members in as many years, I embarked on collecting family history. With no immediate family member having attempted to record far-flung details, challenges were great. That work led me to help others jumpstart their own memoir writing process, through “What’s Your Story?” Workshops and editing. I love to assist people to discover liberty, in reviewing their own lives.
