I am only beginning to think about myself as a writer.  Okay, fine, I still don’t.  It’s a journey.  Still, I’m honored and thrilled that my writing has appeared in various places, online and in print.

I am fortunate to have had my work included in these five print anthologies:

This is Childhood

The HerStories Project: Women Explore the Joy, Pain, and Power of Female Friendship

Torn: True Stories of Kids, Career, and the Conflict of Modern Motherhood

So Long: Short Memoirs of Loss and Remembrance
