About Me


I grew up in San Pedro, California, was educated at Oberlin College and the University of Iowa Writers' Workshop, and I now live in Baraboo (near Madison), Wisconsin, with my family, spending part of the year in Los Angeles. I'm the author of the novels The Tracks of Angels, Self-Portrait with Ghosts, and the forthcoming Ghost Mother. 

My short plays and monologues have been produced in New York, Boston, Madison, and Glasgow, Scotland; I also write flash fiction, often based on fractured fairy tales; my travel stories tend to focus on culture, food, and drink; and I enjoy writing articles concerning women at midlife. 

As a longtime teacher, writing coach, and editor, I am passionate about helping other writers achieve success. 

I laugh hard and often and agree with Oscar Wilde that "Life is too important to be taken seriously."
