About Me

I live in Berkeley with my husband, child, and two cats.

I have current work on-line in Poemeleon, Fringe, The Midway, New Verse News, Babel Fruit, and elsewhere.

Why do you write?

I write to be part of the conversation of readers and writers. I write because I like playing with words. I write because I think better while writing, and I like to surprise myself.

Any favorite authors? Books?
