Writer and reader of many things. Wife, mother, mutant, standup comic, and a pervert (one of those is a lie). Hopelessly flawed and working to improve myself. Thanks for sticking around.
I once fell off a mountain.
My writing can be found various places online and in print.
People, experiences, and regret fuel my creativity. I write to work out what I feel and because I dearly love to laugh.
Harley, sweet, sweet Harley, your recent comments on "What Some Boys Do" are way more than I might ever dream of. Truly lovely, and for that I am so grateful.
Harley! Thanks for your sweet comment on "Apnea." Also WHAT YOU FELL OFF A CLIFF?
Thanks Harley, lovely comment!
Thanks for the note on “Stroller Mania.” I just read “Saturday Morning.” THAT was impressive.
Hi, Harley. Thanks for faving the Tapeworm poem!
I loved your Letter to an Aerobics Instructor. I appreciated you comment on the child's perspective in Pig Girl. It's a delicate balance to capture. Thanks so much.
Thanks for taking the time to read my piece. And there is no need to lie. One of my best friends was a mutant. :o)
Hi Harley! Thank you for your input. Your short, "What I Should Have Said" has a remarkable likeness to the short story I have posted that I am trying to complete. If you are inspired to dive in, I'd love to get your sense of my Chapter One. It is called, BLOCKED. I'll be sure to visit your work often.
Thanks, Harley for faving "A Good Man Deserves a Good Woman"... "pop on the hiney " is a first for me but I like it.

Thank you for your lovely comment on It Stops, you're such a sweetheart.
Harley, Thanks for your kind note on Whipping Post. Glad you appreciated the spareness. Lately, I've noticed, I've been stripping things down, to dignify the space around. To offer that time to think, as you wrote. So happy that worked for you.
Why thank you, Ms. May.
Harley - thanks for reading "Help Me Own You". p.s. love your profile pic. Somethng about it...
Thanks so much Harley for commenting on "The Minds of Men". Really appreciate it.
i really liked your pieces so far. the personal voice you have, a way of using diction in a very personal way- i really admire the style.
Falling off a mountain might have been falling into something else. Either way it's cool if you live to tell about it. You came to the right place.
well, well if it isn't harley. welcome, capricorn.
Was the mountain okay?
Hi, Harley. Welcome.
It hurts. It leaves a great impact on what comes afterward.Let's just reread the first fall.
