Creative Projects:

As a writer of YA novels and memoir, I gravitate to stories that feature young people, strong female characters, and uplifting tales of triumph over tough circumstances through humor and grit.

ON YA Novels: HIDE 
HYDE PARK has a new working title - HIDE and is currently at editorial camp.  More on the novel and its progress this summer.  

How we spend our days is of course how we spend our lives. - Annie Dillard
