My novel, The Timekeeper’s Son, was published by Deeds Publishing November 2016. My screenplay, One of Us, was a finalist in the CineStory screenplay contest, and my radio play A Wagner Matinee, was aired on BBC Radio and NPR. I have been a fellow at the Hambidge Center, and have received several scholarships to the Squaw Valley Community of Writers. I have a M.A. degree in English Literature from Boston College, and I have taught at the University of Georgia, The Georgia Institute of Technology, and Piedmont College. After my own struggle with trauma and chronic illness, I designed a writing to heal class for a local cancer center. This has been the most rewarding work I have done by far. In the eleven years of facilitating this workshop, I have presented at international conferences and published in the field of writing to heal. I live in Athens, Georgia, with my husband, Todd, a retired physicist. We have four grown children, a dog and a cat. When I am not writing, I enjoy gardening, singing, dancing, and traveling. I feel blessed to live in such a wonderful community.
