“My response to life is to write it.”
I am a writer and facilitator based in Rutland, Vermont. Holding an MFA in Creative Nonfiction (2021) and an MA in Transformative Language Arts (2013) from Goddard College, and certified through the Center for Journal Therapy (2009), I write for the Rutland Herald/Times Argus and teach online for the TLA Network.
My first book, Lilian Baker Carlisle: Vermont Historian, Burlington Treasure; A Scrapbook Memoir was published in June 2017. I wrote regular columns for the Rutland Reader and Rutland Herald for six years and have essays published in The Pitkin Review, Rutland Magazine, Chrysalis, Journal of Transformative Language Arts, and Transformative Language Arts in Action. I occasionally blog for the TLA Network, and as a history buff, I write pieces on local history which can be found at rutlandwhen.wordpress.com. I am currently revising my memoir and a personal essay collection.
