Said novel, a Borders Original Voices Award Finalist that was acquired by eleven — count ’em, eleven — countries, is held in high esteem by pretty much everyone…except the geniuses at the New York Times.
Her writing has appeared in New England Review, Clackamas Literary Review, New Delta Review, The Independent (UK), and, most recently, Shambhala Sun. This last publication seems an ideal fit for her, given her love of the beauty of nature and her hatred of war.
She learned a lot from being a writing coach to a man on death row…so much that she wrote a four-part series on the exchange.
Her artistic skill goes beyond pen and paper…check out her blue doll, What Promise Was Broken.
She was also a reluctant beauty pageant contestant.
And did we mention Rush?
