ISN'T FORTY KIND OF OLD FOR THAT?

I came late to marriage and motherhood and have been writing about it ever since. My manuscript, focused on the birth of our first child and the subsequent struggles to parent and expand our family, is aptly titled, Isn't Forty Kind Of Old For That? Essays from the collection have been published in Brain, Child; Oregon Literary Review; and Literary Mama.

THE PERSONAL IS POLITICAL

For many years I worked in the political arena and I continue to be passionate about politics. After the NYT podcast, The Daily, interviewed teenaged girls about their reaction to the Brett Kavanaugh hearings, I suggested they interview boys as well . . . and they asked me to interview mine.

CONSULTING

Grant proposals, strategic plans, annual reports, marketing materials, newsletters - I write them all. Most clients are nonprofits, but I've helped out an independent bookstore too. Recently I've started mentoring students through the college application process, and found it incredibly rewarding. Need a writer or a mentor? I'd love to hear from you.
