about & contact

My husband and I have lived a bit of all over the place but we currently live in California. Yosemite is probably my favorite place we’ve been. — Yosemite, and home.

I read slowly, and reread what I love endlessly, so it is hard to choose favorites.  But some of the authors I keep returning to are James Marshall, A. A. Milne, Beatrix Potter, Hans Christian Andersen, Katherine Mansfield, C. S. Lewis, Jane Austen, Ruth Pitter, Kathleen Raine, Sara Teasdale, Robert Hayden, Amado Nervo, Boethius, Dante, Aeschylus, Isaiah, the apostle John.

Some of my poems, stories, artwork, essays, and translation efforts have appeared in Anima, Indiana Voice Journal, Shotglass, The Journal of Formal Poetry, The Avocet, Quill and Parchment, Assisi, Radix, Blue Unicorn, Tinderbox, Rabbit Room, Story Warren, & other places.
