My work is grounded in a simple ethos:
What we say matters.
How we say it matters.
Words don’t just describe the world, they create it.
Everything I do as a writer, editor and teacher springs from my desire to use the power of words for good.
I am the author of wine and travel guide Oregon Wine Pioneers. In addition to journalism and fiction, I write poems, rants, recipes, love letters. I teach college writing and elementary English. When I need a lift, I pick up Thoreau, Didion, Salinger, McCullers, Capote, O’Connor, Gellhorn, Thompson, Hemingway, Epictetus.
My work is scattered among publications including Transition, Cosmo, The Nervous Breakdown, Whole Life Times, Mslexia, and more.
