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.

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

Verbatim is a new journal of creative writing and art, with début issue in early 2018. The journal celebrates talented local writers and artists, as a project organized by the Daviess County Public Library. I’m pleased to collaborate with Owensboro’s D.C.P.L. as a contributor, with “Osceola,” a memoir segment, and “Ohio River Steps 1,” a black and white photograph.
