I write true stories on the impact of genetics and disease on female identity and male-female relationships in a patriarchal society, and on the politics of the body, for publications such as Brevity, Jezebel, the Huffington Post and Salon. I am looking for a home for my memoir.
I earned an MFA in non-fiction writing from Pacific University, hold certificates in Memoir and Literary Fiction from the University of Washington, as well as a BA in Journalism from Western Washington University.
Former teachers include Debra Gwartney, Judy Blunt, Scott Korb, Craig Lesley, Mike Magnuson, Lidia Yuknavitch, Pam Houston, Theo Pauline Nestor, Scott Driscoll, Pete Steffings, Ted Stannard, Steve Pearse, and Steve Kelly. I am grateful to them all.
