Writing, Reading and Living


Welcome and thank you for dropping by. I’m an essayist and memoirist, the author of two memoirs, numerous essays, and I'm a contributor to 15 books. My essays and memoirs are infused and shaped by my Native roots, my identity as a mixedblood, and my connection to the landscape. 
Within my blog posts, essays and insights offered here, my stories illuminate our humanity, remind us to be open, to connect, to hope, to question—or bring change. Some of my essays are serious/substantial, and are balanced with lighter topics. Most of all, my writing is timeless (vs timely).
