What do you struggle with most as a writer?

Isolation and blank pages. That feeling of being overwhelmed with how long it takes to get anywhere in this ocean of creativity. I need community, someone to talk craft with, and to hang out with folks that understand and share the passion.

How long have you been writing?

I wrote my first poem in jr. high and have been writing poetry ever since. I have been switch hitting poetry and fiction since my early 30's late 20's.

Where do you want your writing to take you?

"To fame and fortune and everything that goes with it!" No, seriously, I would love to publish something that makes contact with another soul out there somewhere, even if I never know.


I am a poet and writer. I have 3 kids, 3 grandkids, 3 dogs...1 husband of 25+ years and lived in the PNW (Bothell) for 20+. I graduated from UW in 2013 with and English degree emphasis on creative writing.
