I’m a novelist, award-winning essayist, addicted reader, and dedicated fan of the Colorado mountains. Most of my life has been devoted to men—my husband and three sons—but there has to be a balance in all things. So the rest of my world is about women, both real and imaginary: facilitating workshops for girls, writing essays about mothering and women’s issues, and writing women’s fiction.

I have an M.A. with a concentration in Transformative Language Arts and am a former CPA. (Yeah, we could talk about that, but let’s not.) I’ve presented writing workshops both locally and nationally, including creating and facilitating writing and expressive arts workshops for adolescent girls at-risk in the Houston area.

I’m a native Texan and divide my time between Texas and Colorado. But I have to give a grateful shout-out to Vermont where I received my master’s degree and attended The Bread Loaf Writers’ Conference—extraordinary experiences that are still impacting my life so many years later.

When I’m not writing, you’ll typically find me in a comfy place reading a good book, hiking in the mountains, hanging out with my family, and avoiding any surprise encounters with moose.
