Author's Bio

My spirit is defined by my writing; it has been so since I can remember. Poetry and fiction chose me, not the other way around. Through writing, I am living as an artist which was something my mother (as so many women of her generation) wanted, was unable to do. With each line I write, I reconsider, re-examine, give thanks for the unfolding that is my life.
