Author's Bio

 I am the author of 10 nonfiction books, two fiction for children.  My stories and articles have appeared in such magazines as Harper’s, Ms., Book Forum, New Age, and Camera 35.   I have made many radio and television appearances.

             I have had residencies at the Virginia Center for Creative Arts, the Edna St. Vincent Millay Colony, Djerassi, and Fundacion Valparaiso (Spain).

            Aside from writing, I have taught workshops and courses for over 20 years across the country. The United Nations named me a “Remarkable Woman.” I have instructed for 15+ years at the Long Ridge Writers Institute.

        I have packaged 18 books for others and received a national science award, grant from the NEA, been the subject of a PBS film documentary, and included in The Best of the Small Presses.

       Currently I edit Distinctly Montana, a quarterly lifestyle magazine, which has featured Rick Bass, Tom McGuane, Ernest Hemingway, F.Scott Fitzgerald, and Jim Harrison.  I’ve also done freelance editing for Random House, W.W. Norton, Macmillan.
