Me, and You
I’m horrible at small talk. It often begins with, “so what do you do?” I get it. It’s an easy glimpse into someone’s life, a starting point. Still, what I “do” (work as an editor) is not who I am. And I could also say I am a mother, I am a writer, I am a potter, I am a vegan, etc., and all of those labels would give you about as much of an idea of me as a few minutes of small talk might. But there is obviously little nuance in labels; we are all bigger than all our labels stacked up together. So I hope you get to know me a little more through my writing, and I’d be happy to know you too, if you leave me a comment or send me an email.
I’m writing (and submitting!) all the time. I’m currently working on a novel and short stories. I have an MFA in Creative Writing from the Vermont College of Fine Arts. My work has appeared in Ruminate Magazine’s The Waking, Past Ten, The Moving Force Journal, Waxing and Waning Literary Journal, and Beloit Fiction Journal (Issue 36, Spring 2023). My novel, Amazing Disgrace, can be found at online booksellers such as Amazon.
This is the chronicle of a journey many of us find ourselves on — the search for meaning in all the things that break our hearts and all the things that make them whole again.
