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.

Recently, A.A.R.P. announced they have selected my responses for an upcoming CAREGIVERS FEATURE, to appear online and in national publications. The comments selected centered around challenges and rewards of extending support to others.

My work appears in a new collection of narratives, published in May 2017. Family Stories from the Attic is an anthology of essays, creative nonfiction and poetry, inspired by family letters, objects and archives. You may find inspiration in its pages to commemorate loved ones, using tangible memories they have left behind.    Read more
