"Writing is a socially-acceptable form of schizophrenia." - E. L. Doctorow

Background Information

I've been writing since I was in fourth grade and won my first essay contest when I was 15. Expressing oneself with the written word, and moving others with your talent is a gift.

To make a living I do commercial and business proposal and grant writing for small businesses and nonprofits. Writing for pleasure includes personal essays (published), profiles and lifestyle features for the local paper (published) and children's books and poetry (still unpublished!)

When I write I communicate things that I feel need to be confronted  but that few want to say out loud.

Additional Information

I just completed "The Cranberry Box", a young girl's discovery of self-esteem and the value of family in shaping her identity. "Bedtime for Buddy" is a collection of nocturnal tales with a canine twist. The Washington Post recently published my essay "Times That Try Men's Souls"
