Hello, and welcome to my website. I’m a writer (memoir, essays, profiles), a writing teacher, and an editor. I also serve as publisher of SHARK REEF Literary Magazine and a staff writer for The Wayfarer Magazine. I’m also a Quaker who believes everyone (including every creature) has a story to tell. Here, you can read more of mine on my blog and through some of the essays I’ve published. Check out my events page or contact me – I’d love to hear your story.

Please take a look around the site to learn more about my three books, Hiking Naked (Homebound Publications), BOUNTY: Lopez Island Farmers, Food, and Community (Lopez Community Land Trust), and Hands At Work (Heron Moon Press). You can purchase Hands at Work at a special, reduced price if you order through the website, here.

In March 2022, my fourth book, Writer in a Life Vest, will be published by Homebound Publications. You can pre-order this essay collection at the Homebound online store.
