What I’m working on now

Developing your process as an artist of any kind can be chaotic and frustrating. In working through my own process, I’m developing ways that are working for me and my friends, and writing about it on my blog – towards turning it into a book. If you have stories or input about great ways to create more focused process in your life and work, I would love to hear from you!

Beyond the official bio, in my quest to write a book or project in every main genre, I have also recently completed the book and lyrics for a musical romantic-comedy production called Manifest This!

Other current projects include a memoir (36 Kitchens: How Neither Here nor There BecameHome), a historical mystery novel about art (The Green Dress), a family history about my 16 great-great grandparents (16 Journeys), and a book of essays (Weaving the Net:
On Becoming an Artist Later in Life)
