I live in the Pacific Northwest with my husband and two daughters. After getting my Ph.D. in physical anthropology I promptly set aside my professional career to raise my children. I also began writing and have been unable to stop. I write primarily poetry and flash fiction, with a tendency to straddle the line between the two.
My fiction has been published in SmokeLong Quarterly, Kalliope, Quarter After Eight, wigleaf, Rumble, THEMA, Crow Toes Quarterly, and the anthology "Ruins Terra."
My poetry has appeared in Carousel, Feathertale, Poetry International, Poet Lore, The Pedestal Magazine, Perigee, Prick of the Spindle, Orbis, and many others. More poems are forthcoming in Big Muddy, fourW Twenty, The Interpreter's House, and Fifth Wednesday Review. I've also had poems included in the anthologies "Eating Her Wedding Dress" and "In the Telling."
Reading, living, watching, learning. I don't think there's anything that does not fuel my creativity.
Ray Bradbury says it best: "You must stay drunk on writing so reality cannot destroy you." I write to remain sane.
Bradbury, Chekhov, Tolstoy, Dostoevsky, Tolkien, LeGuin, Alcott, Verne, and many others for fiction. Favorite poets include Whitman, Fennelly, Frost, Laux, Williams, Neruda, Addonizio, and Bishop.
I like that Bradbury quote...
