Tell us a little about yourself?

I look at the world in many ways through the lens of an anthropologist and am working on ways to convey that perspective to popular audiences, rather than being mired in scholarly writing.

Who are some of your favorite nonfiction writers?

Joan Didion, Truman Capote, Mary Kerr, James McBride,

What would you like to get out of this meetup?

At this point, I write more creative non-ficiton than I read. I would like to read more and discuss it with others to see what works with readers and what doesn't. I would also like to share some of my work if your group does that as well.


I am a cultural anthropologist and former professor of Native American Studies, who also writes creative non-fiction. I am currently revising a memoir, as well as working on some other creative non-fiction projects.
