Author's Bio

I feel like my job is to bear witness and take notes, thus I write mostly nonfiction and poetry. I open my self up to readers in books like Childless by Marriage and Stories Grandma Never Told because somebody needs to tell these stories. Sometimes, when they're just too much, I turn them into fiction.
