An award-winning writer with an MFA in prose and more than forty years experience writing for the public, I bring energy and an informed, flexible approach to sharing what I've learned and learning from others.
Since 2021, my writing life has been transformed through the study and practice of haiku and the associated short-form literary genres of tanka, and haibun. All that follows reflects my experience until this shift in focus. Reading in all genres (Eastern and Western), as well as walks in the woods and fields around my home in Groton, MA, and on the coast of Maine, remain the source of my inspiration.
My work has appeared in metro Boston newspapers and arts and literary magazines, including Art New England, the Boston Globe, Boston Review, and Harvard Review. I have published fiction and creative nonfiction in Harvard Review, Circa, Shadowbox Magazine, Wild Apples: A Journal of Nature, Art, and Inquiry, Poetry Porch, the T.J. Eckleburg Review (Johns Hopkins), and others.

I am happy to get together (over cappuccino!) to discuss in more detail or dialog via email and phone, as geography and time constraints dictate.
