Writer

While the bulk of the writing I produce is fiction, I have been working on writing a memoir about my powerful and beautiful mother for years. I also seem to write poems every time my heart breaks and sometimes when the light outside is painfully exquisite. These poems, along with the songs I write for similar reasons, are not very good, but they feed and fill my soul. 

Check out some of my most recent writing here.

Reader

For me, going a week without reading for pleasure is like going a week without exercise or vegetables. I start to wither into myself and atrophy. Reading is a vitamin, a workout, a beer, and a cry all in one. 

Some of my favorite writers are William Faulkner, Harper Lee, Toni Morrison, Gabriel García Márquez, Audre Lorde, Lucille Clifton, Samuel Beckett, Henrik Ibsen, and Shakespeare.
