Welcome to the world of creative nonfiction, life story writing, and powerful, transgressive stories that inspire healing change.

My life’s work is guiding these stories out into the open. Working with authors, artists, activists, and adventuresome scholars, I hope to transform heartbreak, trauma, secrets, faith tales, and hidden family histories into art.

My roots are settler roots. I’ve lived in a tobacco barn, on farmsteads, in great river cities and old steel towns, on the eastern seaboard, in a funky mountain town in the Southern Rockies, and in the high desert country of the great Southwest.

Wherever I go, I am at home.

You can find me in print and online (see Writing).

Body & Soul: Stories for Skeptics & Seekers, (Caitlin Press 2019) Diverse. Unorthodox. And wholly original. With a Foreword by Alison Pick.
