I live in the Pacific NW, in a little old house on a hill, surrounded by trees and books and the people I love. I'm the mother of four, a brand-new nonna, and the happy wife of Mark, my engineer husband who doesn't need much poetry at all. (I love him anyway.)  

I try to keep my work, my life, focused on simple things - love, honesty, and beauty among them.  Most of my life has been going off the trail and searching through the shadows, chasing the tail end of doubt and question.  No matter how deep into the dark I have gone, I have always found love waiting, and that gives me courage to leave my footprints here in words.  

Thanks so much for coming by.
