Welcome to my website! R portrait


I write about people, places,  and things.  


I write because Life Goes On --And We Just Try To Keep Up.


Please sit down with me and visit a while. Catch your breath, pet the pets, sniff the flowers (avoiding the bees), and meet friends and family.  


Oh, and while you're here--please check out my blog. I write about life lived in all its glory and imperfections; about the seduction of storytelling with the painstaking process of writing; about relationships and society and mental health, including joy and pain.

I also hope you check out my first two novels, TWICE BEGUN (2012) and SILENT BIRD (2013). My new novel, THE SPIRIT OF SHY MOON LAKE, will be out this summer. So will my first children's picture book, THE HOUSE THAT SNEEZED, which deals with the all-important topic of grief.


I hope you visit me often and enjoy your stay....

Come visit me!

My video trailer... coming soon!

Coming soon...

My sister Irene's site


This is my sister's recently opened site, filled to the brim with music and art.  Her song, "Love Again" will be featured on the audio version of TWICE BEGUN (coming soon).
