Writing

I've been writing for more than 20 years. I hold a bachelor's of arts in English and a bachelor's of science in Journalism, both from CU Boulder.

 

I started my writing career as a journalist, and found that the stressful and fast-paced environment wasn't a good match for me.

 

I shifted into freelancing and have written for various newspapers, magazines, journals, and web sites. I also wrote a chapter in the psychology anthology Rebearths: Conversations with a World Ensouled. Currently, I write for Endometriosis.net and DreamTime magazine. 

I'm also working on a memoir about my divorce and coming out as queer and nonbinary. I am currently seeking representation. 

Additionally, I write children's picture books from the identities of activist, naturalist, educator, and dreamer, and therefore my books feature stories about the natural world, the LGBTQIA+ community, imagination, dreams, and empowerment. I am actively querying several manuscripts with agents and editors. I participate in the 12x12 writing challenge, and I belong to the Queer Kidlit community and a couple of critique groups. I've attended the Highlights Summer Camp, the Picture Book Summit, and in fall 2021 I'm participating in Revision Season. 

I've been writing blogs on and off since 2004, both on this site and my tutoring site
