I am a freelance Writer and Educator with an unshakable love for great stories. Prior to my current life adventures, I was a Theatre Artist for over a decade: writing, performing, and directing plays throughout North America. There's nothing like a live audience to let you know when a story is, or isn't working. Theatre taught me so much about character development, dialogue, pacing, and engaging story telling; I'm grateful. I'm also grateful to be living a much more peaceful life these days.
Today I live in a delightful little town with a great partner and an adorable puppy, named Bernie. I am embrace a zero-waste, minimalist, eco-friendly lifestyle, and I record my adventures in my blog, Oak & Whimsy.
Harry Potter, The Chronicles of Narnia, Letters to a Young Poet, Tao te Ching (Stephen Mitchell translation), Full Moon Feast, everything written by Jane Austen, Shakespeare, Margaret Atwood, Kurt Vonnegut, & Chimimanda Ngozi Adichie.
Hello babies. Welcome to Earth. It's hot in the summer and cold in the winter. It's round and wet and crowded. On the outside, babies, you've got a hundred years here. There's only one rule that I know of, babies:
God damn it, you've got to be kind.
