About Me



I’m a writer, and my most recent book is
NEVER COMPLETELY AWAKE, available now at Deerbrook Editions and Amazon.com.

I am also the author of Where It Goes, Learning By Rote, Not Untrue and Not Unkind and Running Like A Woman With Her Hair On Fire.

I was the winner of i.e. magazine’s Editor’s Choice Poetry Chapbook Prize for 1998:  An Apparent, Approachable Light.

I am also the author of  Lima Beans and City Chicken: Memoirs of the Open Heartha memoir of my father—published by E.P. Dutton and Co. in 1989.

I ‘ve  been included in Ascent Aspirations first hard-copy Anthology and three others in the Ascent Aspirations Anthology library, also in the anthologies In The Company Of Women, Hot Summer Nights,  Blessed Are These Hands, It Happened Under Cover and others.  I’ve been widely published in literary magazines in the U.S. and abroad.

I live in my beloved city, Hollywood, CA with my husband, a Media Creative, and our furbaby, Linus T. Cat.

 My friends and family tell me I’m a very nice person, though certifiably mad.
