I write from personal experience and epiphany, and I trust the writer’s craft to transform the world through words on a page: my prose bridges spiritual memoir and literary nonfiction.

As a storyteller, I believe that questioning the stories we hold true, writing new ones from hope and power, and living from our revisions is life’s greatest adventure.

It’s our reason for being — the magnificent love affair between imagination and life.

Question, rewrite, revise, start again. This is the voyage into mystery and possibility, and, if we’re bold, it’s a courageous straight-on sailing into uncharted waters. It’s the timeless trek of personal mythology, a singular road that embraces life’s darkest times as the soul boldly moves toward her own great, radiant light.

It’s the passage into beauty and freedom.

I hold a BA in Philosophy and an ALM from Harvard. My thesis united Comparative Literature, The Study of Religion, and Art History to unfold the baroque mysticism of José Lezama Lima’s novel length poem, “Paradiso.”

Harvard conferred Dean’s Honors on my graduate work.

I’ve lived in rural Maine for the past five years — cooking vegan, gardening organic, painting abstract expressions, photographing nature, meditating, learning about life, writing prose and poems, and unearthing a memoir.

  1. Very grateful to see your web page up and running. You remain my most reliable window to the world of women’s thoughts, issues, hopes, and anger. You have been a true Mentor to me over the years. Although I will always be a Male, you have given me new perspectives on what that means and a more enlightened way of viewing Women and their reality. Thank you for the gift of you and your thoughts…and so much more over the years since I first saw that Atlantic ad. Keep your windows always open, My Friend
