I'm a Seattle transplant with roots in South Africa, Italy, and Australia. My work has appeared in Prole, Dunes Review, Crack the Spine, Ginosko, Phoebe, RiverSedge, Sugar House Review, Sanskrit Literary-Arts Review, and many others. My day jobs have included social worker, counselor, college professor, researcher, community developer, and grant writer. Fourteen of my novels are self-published through Amazon. I’m a tree-hugging polyglot, global nomad, and inveterate adherent to systematic acts of kindness.
