Genre: Women’s Fiction

Bio: As a girl, I was fond of folding and stapling craft paper into miniature books that I filled with drawings and happily-ever-after stories. I was a scholarship art student and worked in graphics, but eventually returned to my other love, writing. I’m well-published in poetry and fiction. In the Context of Love, a story about love, lust and family secrets, is my debut novel.
Favorite thing about being a writer: I can triumph over adversity, explore a world different from mine, reconfigure time, and challenge myself. I can fail and then get back up. I can make the impossible possible, turn the ugly into something beautiful, and name the unthinkable. Through story, I can help readers make sense of the chaos we call life.
Biggest challenge as an indie author: Being published by a small press means not getting the big advance that another author might get from a big New York publisher. But that’s okay. I didn’t write In the Context of Love to get rich. I wrote it because the story begged to be written.
Favorite book: Gilead by Marilynne Robinson. It can still make me cry.
