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 all the time. I have an MFA in Creative Writing from the Vermont College of Fine Arts, and am seeking a home for a novel and a number of short stories. My work has appeared in Ruminate Magazine’s online publication, The Waking, as well as in Past Ten, and in The Moving Force Journal. I have a short fiction forthcoming in Waxing and Waning Literary Journal and Beloit Fiction Journal. 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.
