4 lb baby when the earth was young, from Boston, went to Emerson College and Boston Clerical School, voracious reader, love contemporary lit; people who write. I teach creative writing, one group is homeless women, an honor. I've crawled over railroad tracks in eastern Ukraine, visited Siberia where the sun stayed out till one o'clock, spoken niminoshka types of Russia, lived in Dnepropetrovsk, Ukraine, lived there when Gorbachev was ousted, written about it. I've lived inMinsk, traveled in Russia and Belarus by myself with interpreter, and I was once a wimp.
I am passionate about the anonymous amongst us, nobility seen from a sidewise view; my writing voice is one of buoyant pathos, and write like you paint. A friend said today, "you are a strong life force," and over coffee at Peets, I said, "Yes I dol" I believe in the process of becoming your true self, Dan Jordan's booklet, and
I'm a Baha'i, a believer in the oneness of humankind, a writer of two books You Carry the Heavy Stuff (latest) and Without A Net, a Sojourn in Russia. Courage to Write, anthology just edited by me; published under auspices of Pasadena Reads, check La Pintoresca library.
Second book on Lulu and in my possesion- You Carry the Heavy Stuff, an example of a lot of writing voices, first book on Amazon, also Heavy stuff.
I jump out of airplanes to visit pug dogs on the ground, and some days I have the personality of an untamed dalmation, which means I am passionate about people, dogs, ideas, racial justice, my husband, my friends, books, books, books.

Published book The Courage to Write, and the writers are those who have taken various Courage to Write workshops of mine. I teach creative writing, am an activist, and I love pug dogs, my husband, (not in that order), my family, friends, and the anonymous amongst us.
