Welcome! I am a writer, teacher, creator, and artist. For over five years, I've brought writing and creativity workshops across five states.
Now near enough to the Ohio River to hear barge traffic, I am originally from South Bend, Indiana. 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 my direct experience with families who cope with autism. In May of 2017, Hidden Timbers Press released an anthology, Family Stories from the Attic, that includes my pages.
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 led me to help others jumpstart their memoir writing process, through “What’s Your Story?” Workshops and editing. I love to assist people to discover the liberty available, by review of their own lives.
