Welcome and thank you for dropping by. I'm an essayist, memoirist, a contributor to fifteen books, the author of two memoirs, and essays in numerous publications. My stories illuminate our humanity, remind us to be open, to connect, to hope, to question—or bring change.
For me, writing is a way of reaching out to others, to people I don't know. I sit alone, in silence, but all that time I’m out there, connecting with whoever reads my words. Some of my essays included here are serious/substantial and are balanced with lighter topics. Most of all, my writing is timeless (vs timely).
