I write literary fiction with a dark edge about what goes awry when human connection is missing from our lives. I’m the author of three novels—The Last Storyteller (2021), What Remains Unsaid (2017), and Dance of Souls (2011)—and a book of short stories, Tiny Shoes Dancing (2018), which was shortlisted for the 2019 International Rubery Book Award. My short fiction has appeared in a number of print and online publications.

I served as editor of Fault Zone, the anthology of California writers produced by the SF Peninsula Branch of the California Writers Club, and served as the branch president and VP. I was selected for a literary residency with the Shuffle Collective in 2020. In 2022, I wrapped up a nearly 20-year career as a birth doula and returned to my first calling: writing and editing. I recently co-founded the Birth Your Truest Story writers’ community with my lifelong friend, Jennifer Browdy, where I teach workshops and support a lively group of writers.

I live in northern California with my husband and two cats. Of course, I’m at work on another novel.
