Author's Bio

Aside from my being an adjunct instructor and visiting writer in schools through the NJ and AK Arts Councils, I would like to share that I have been a house-sitter to write since 1993. This mobility has enabled me to write in and of unusual settings. Simplicity has fostered meaningful connections to the natural world.
