Welcome to my website
I love stories—writing them, listening to them, teaching them, living them.
Please enjoy visiting the different pages on my site.
The journal is an ongoing exploration in writing and pictures.
My novel The Side Door follows Melrose Bird, a.k.a. Mel, a 15-year-old living in a middle-American town called New Moon Falls and attending a high school called Drift. Mel, in her own unique way, brings herself and her town out of the closet. The Side Door was nominated for a Lambda Literary Award and won the Dramatic General Fiction Award from the 2011 Golden Crown Literary Society (GCLS). It also received an Honorable Mention Eric Hoffer Small Press Award.
