Author's Bio

After writing and publishing nonfiction (books and articles) for a long time I finally said yes to the impulse to write fiction, about 10 years ago. I've had several short stories published in journals and anthologies. My first novel Dancing with Diana was published by Codhill Press in May 2015. My "day job" is performing, teaching, and writing about Playback Theatre where audience members tell personal stories and see them enacted. I see all my work linked by the idea of story.
