Inspired by the many forms creativity can take, I am particularly drawn to the magic of language—how just a few words can evoke laughter or tears, curiosity, rage or solace.
A storyteller, writer and editor, I have published Reversible Skirt, an award-winning memoir of my childhood, and the flash fiction collection, The Ice Cream Vendor's Song. I love the transformative effect memoirs can have on both writers and readers, and the way flash fiction can pack entire universes into a few lines of text.
