cropped-wallpaper-1.pngWelcome to my website. As my business card describes, I’m a writer (memoir, essays, profiles), a writing teacher, and an editor. I also serve as publisher of SHARK REEF Literary Magazine, a staff writer for The Wayfarer Magazine, and a board member for the Orcas Island Literary Festival.

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).
