Writer. Editor. Memoirist. Humorist. Born and raised in the Adirondacks—now living in Orange County, CA. I love all things nostalgia...but I also have a snarky sense of humor. My writing influences are David Sedaris and Dorothy Parker. (Do with that what you will!)
My Personal Fickle Failures
Never became the roller derby princess I always wanted to be, I started making jewelry and stuck with that for about a year, have tried every diet in the book and can't stick with one to save my life, started learning the uke, bought myself a fancy Nikon and fancied myself a burgeoning photographer....
My Personal Influences
David Sedaris, Dorothy Parker, Sylvia Plath, Carol Burnett, Erma Bombeck, Henry Miller, Anaïs Nin, Anne Rice, Marilyn Monroe, Bette Davis, Joan Crawford, Arthur Miller, Lawrence Durell, Tina Fey, Percy Bysshe Shelley, Mary Shelley, Lord Byron, Simon & Garfunkel, and Miranda Priestly—to name a few.
My Presence on Medium
My publications are:
The Memoirist, Age of Empathy, Black Bear, QuickTalk, The Mayhem, The Writing Pub, Songstories, Dear KiKi, and The Unfocused Writer.
