Hi, and thanks for visiting me here!

I’ve been called a Renaissance lady, to which I reply, “thank you.” Others have whispered the words overachiever and perfectionist behind my back, phrases I now take as a compliment. And as for those who call me a dreamer, well, sometimes what they perceive as me dreaming is me creating a plan for my dreams to become a reality. Or, a character has caught me in their silent web of communication, in which case, it’s best not to disturb.

Through my ancestors, I inherited a love of writing, reading, art, and travel, along with a deep sense of social justice and a love of nature and animals. I enjoy stories about people and their relationships with themselves and their communities and how they connect and affect the wider collective.

I believe reading matters because if you can read, you can learn, and if you can learn, you can make a difference in the world. Learning isn’t always connected to academia, but academia is related to reading and writing; they are the twin souls of education.

I invite you to listen to The Bookshop Podcast, read my books, and browse through essays and imagery old and new.
