I am a writer of fiction (novels and short stories), essays and poetry. Please see the “Publications” page for more information about my writing.
I am currently working on a series of novels about the Oregon Trail in 1847 and life in Oregon and California during the Gold Rush. Why? I grew up on the Western end of the Oregon Trail, and the emigrants’ stories have always fascinated me. I now live in Kansas City, Missouri — at the Eastern end of the Trail. So my migration has been backwards.
I also take on editing and freelance writing assignments. If you are interested, please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
I have been (and sometimes still am) an attorney, a mediator, and a Human Resources executive and consultant. I am also a wife, mother, daughter, sister, friend and colleague. One or more of these experiences may creep into this blog, if the story requires them.
