I'm a fiction writer, novelist, and playwright. I love the worlds I can create with words. It's always a surprise to discover the lives of the people in these worlds, and I'm grateful to lose myself in the mystery of their stories.
I've started a little self-publishing company, Blue Fern Press, to post my work online. I'm having a great time writing very very short stories for twitter. I'm also publishing novel excerpts, short stories, and flash fiction on my website, http://www.bluefernpress.com.
Meanwhile, I'm in the midst of writing my third novel, Flying Through The Air With No Particular Ease. This story is drawing me into the hearts of three sisters who manage their tough lives with the aplomb of circus performers.
My second book, a choral novel called Riversbend Elegy for guns, sax, and harp, is in the revisions process. I hope to publish it this year as an e-book. Riversbend Elegy is a jazz of voices lost in private grief, public conflict, and a few blind prayers. A young soldier has died at war. This novel gives voice to his family, as they gather in his small hometown to mourn his passing. They are singular folk, and their song is often a dissonant one, but the underlying chord of custom carries a familiar American tune.
I grew up in the Midwest, raised by Southern parents. I now make my home in San Francisco with my husband, Jake, and our little mutt, Fritz. We live in a flat overlooking the bay, and I am constantly comforted by the ever-changing blues of that water.
