Stories to enliven, engage, empower
I'm inspired by the many forms creativity can take—whether it's a neighbor's flower garden resplendent with colors, textures and shapes, or an iPhone in hand connecting friends across the globe. I am particularly drawn to the magic of language, how just a few words can evoke laughter or tears, curiosity, rage or solace.
This love of language has led me to become a writer and storyteller. I'm the author of a childhood memoir, Reversible Skirt, which won a silver medal in the 2011 Readers Favorite book awards, and the flash fiction collection, The Ice Cream Vendor's Song. I love the transformative effect memoirs can have on both writers and readers. I also love the way flash fiction can pack entire universes into a few lines of text.
