Author's Bio

I am from small town America, so that's what I write about--life in miniature, as seen from the wide sky above us. Most of this material is worked into short fiction, though I do write poetry, and I have recently begun a collection of essays about sisterhood (as in siblings, not "wild and crazy" middle-aged friends).
