  • About Me

    I'm a novelist, memoir writer and poet.

    My most recent novel, The Singing of Swans (Pearlsong Press, 2006) was a 2007 Lambda Literary Awards Finalist. My short story, "Vicky's Secret," earned the 2007 Glass Woman Prize. My other book-length work includes the novels No Matter What (Spinsters Ink, 1993) and Finding Grace (Spinsters Ink, 1999), and the memoir, Voices of the Soft-bellied Warrior (Spinsters Ink Books, 2001).. My poetry and stories (creative nonfiction and fiction) have been widely published in a variety of literary and cultural journals and anthologies, both online and in print.

    I’m also a writing coach/teacher/editor. As the founder of MOTHEROOT, I lead workshops and embodied art-making and creative writing classes centered on the Dark Mother/Divine Female.;

    Why do you write?

    I write because it helps me make sense of life on this planet.

    Any favorite authors? Books?

    Toni Morrison, Harper Lee and William Faulkner are some of my favorite authors. Some of my favorite books include: Beloved, To Kill a Mockingbird, As I Lay Dying, and The Secret Life of Bees.
