This is me, completely raw and honest, and thrilled to be a part of ASLI.

It is deeply rewarding to announce you can now find my work in the incredible April collection ART SAVES LIVES INTERNATIONAL (ASLI) has curated.

In addition to my short story, “Right Kind of Woman,” ASLI has published an interview with me on my writing, my work and being a woman in today’s world. In it, I am very honest. It took me a long while to compose my answers because ASLI is an organization devoted to my greatest passion: improving lives through the various mediums of art. Every day I write for just one person. That one person is sometimes me, but more often it might be you.

You can read more about why I believe this writing is necessary as well as why I teach Writing through Trauma here.

You can read my short story, “Right Kind of Woman,” here. 

I would love to hear from you should this work resonate with you in any form.
