"I decided to accept as true my own thinking."

I'm a writer, musician, teacher, and passionate seeker of spiritual understanding. I'm intrigued with the invisible forces of connection, creativity, and mystery that give meaning to our lives. Exploring the invisible thread that connects spirituality and creativity is the central fascination of my life.



My first book, March Farm: Season by Season on a Connecticut Family Farmwas published in 2012. That year I was awarded the Sisters-in-Script Annual Grant to support its publication.  I've written theater and music reviews for the Register Citizen and Republican-American, and my essays have been published in Edible Nutmeg and Litchfield County Times.

Besides non-fiction, I also write fiction: short stories and novels.  I have a young adult novel currently in revision, as well as several short stories.  In 2016 I graduated with a Masters Degree in Writing and Oral Traditions from  The Graduate Institute in Bethany, Connecticut, and have studied in the MFA program at Manhattanville College.

I am co-author and co-performer, with Gretchen Trapp, of the theater piece "Clara Schumann: A Passionate Spirit," staged in 2003.  The play arose from my work researching and presenting in lecture-recitals women composers, which I studied as part of my graduate degree from Lesley University.
