Transitions, Trauma and 
the Writing Life 

Poetry and stories began in childhood. I developed a rich imagination amid moves and transitions, school and friendship gains and losses, changes in surroundings; the trauma of adoption and separations, I struggled and became a seeker.


Eleven Years Ago my life was transformed in a most traumatic way by a brain hemorrhage, likely from an aneurysm. 


During recovery, I began to study writing by reading the best memoir and craft instruction and taking online courses.
