What is your background in writing, what would you like to work on in the group, and where you from?

I’ve begun another novel & need the company of writers just as obsessed as I am w/ words, solitude, and the parallel worlds we create. I’ve done technical writing, non-fiction, ghost-writing, poetry, a novel (rejected ad nauseum 20 yrs ago), and short stories. My business, Tui Communications, indie published Pacific Voices Talk Story: Conversations of American Experience, Vols 1-4 (2001-‘07), then went broke in 2011. So much for consciousness raising . I’m from Pacific Peoples for whom text & story are tattoo, self-expression on skin. I’m a new category in their midst: English major trained on the page.


Scribo ergo sum--I write therefore I am; that's it. If I couldn't write, I'd be done. It's like Joan Didion said, "I don't know what I think until I write it down." Writing is how I process the world and survive. Plus, my husband pays the mortgage.
