Welcome to my newly recreated writer’s website.
I’ve been on a bit of a writing hiatus. Ten years, but who’s keeping track? I got derailed by a career in commercial real estate, one that wasn’t planned and just happened. Long story. Maybe I’ll write it some day.
In 2015, I enrolled in The University of Iowa’s online class, How Writers Write Fiction, offered through their International Writing Program. I was curious to see if I could still tap into the creative and imaginative part of my brain and write. In short, I could. I also found the process and the writing deeply satisfying.
I feel fortunate to have had much of my work –mostly short stories and essays–published in some good literary journals, newspapers, and magazines, online and in print, and in a number of anthologies. Some of them can be found in my Portfolio.
I’ve always considered myself a short story writer, but in a subsequent Iowa online offering in 2016, Storied Women, I started a story which has grown into something far longer. It is still very much a work in progress.
