Welcome to my website. People often say, write about what you know. I say, write about what you want to learn, and bring others on the journey with you. The same goes for any creation. We need to extend beyond ourselves to be ourselves, and invite others to accompany us.

My interests are always expanding. Currently, I am focusing on writing my third novel and my second collection of poems, as I continue learning about marathon swimming, artisan soap-making, equestrian pursuits–and always, poetry.
