I'm a fledgling fiction writer and essayist, professional story editor, and experienced producer for film and games, as well as a published poet.
Originally from Western Massachusetts, I now live in the Santa Cruz Mountains of California with my boyfriend of thirty-plus years, a she-cat who acts like a princess and cuddles like a koala, and a he-cat who plays fetch and swims laps in his water bowl.
This is a blog about:
- My experiences as a reader, moving books from the "want to read" stack to the "read and rated" shelf.
- My journey as a writer, trying to get my own work out of the slush pile and onto other people's shelves.
