Welcome!

I hold degrees in mathematics and education and have done a little bit of everything: restaurant dishwasher, tour guide, half-way house caregiver, carer of disabled children, stay-at-home mom, mathematics teacher, curriculum designer…

I had my first publication in the millennial issue of Prairie Fire. From 2006 to 2008, I wrote a regular column, features, and essays for women’s quarterly Cahoots Magazine. In 2010, I started a blog called The Giant Pie, which still exists on this site, only without the moniker. Links to my published stories and articles are available on this site.

I’m a columnist and assistant editor at Luna Station Quarterly, writer of fiction and creative nonfiction, occasional Huffington Post blogger, always a reader, and crazy about dogs, yoga, unspoiled grasslands, trees, and anything related to myth, folklore, and fairy tales.

I hope you’ll take some time to explore. Thank you for stopping by.
