I was already a grandmother when my first book was published. It’s never too late! I hope that inspires you.

I am a fortunate woman. I have a wonderful family, good friends, live in a beautiful place, and I get to make a living doing two things I love to do: write and teach writing.

I have retired from university teaching, so there are always several writing projects wrestling for time at the desk. I still teach creative writing in a multitude of venues. Visit my WORKSHOPS & EVENTS page to see upcoming opportunities in 2022, including some in-person and some virtual workshops to keep you writing. And look for new blog posts coming in 2023.

As I update this website, I hope you’ll find interesting and useful information here, some of which may  lead you to other good books, good writers, and good resources. If I meet you on the road, please let me know we visited here.

I’ll be working on the 2023 workshop and appearance schedule soon. Feel free to contact me for more info about presentations, classes, coaching, and developmental editing.

Please be safe and stay well!
