Welcome.

I’m a writer, a poet, a reader, a mom, a teacher, and a bunch of other exciting things. But these pages are devoted to my love of writing, especially writing for kids. And a special joy for writing and reading poetry – everybody needs poetry.

I write because putting words on paper for you — a reader — is the best thing I think I can do in the world. It’s hard and I learn more every single day.

I teach because you too might be a writer and might need some tools to find your writing voice. It took me a long time to say – I am a writer and I am a poet. I teach to show you how to say those important words too.

I live in Wisconsin — maybe thirty minutes from Saint Paul, Minnesota with my two teens, my husband, and our two dogs.

I hope you’ll enjoy my writing and teaching experiments — and experiences!

I don’t really write memoir. Or autobiography. Mostly, I think I’m writing pain. My pain. Poetry, short stories, novels. My characters always have the same inner problem. They have a lot of emotions. But they don’t think they do. And they think the answer is to grind...

Who Am I

Who Am I

I was a fundraiser. I was a database analyst. I’m telling you all this so you can hold me accountable. Because I keep thinking solicitation strategies and database configurations are the only card of value I hold. They aren’t. I think I’m ready to say it. That’s not...
