Check out my short story, Other People’s Children, in the spring 2016 issue of The Broken Plate. It’s an edgy piece about a woman coming to terms with her childlessness.

Other People's Children

My short memoir  The Road for Conquering won an honourable mention in the 2019 Grit Lit creative non-fiction contest.

My short story, Uncle Sam’s Pool, has been published in the Winter 2016 issue of “DAP: The Diverse Arts Project.” The story is set in 1970s India, and is about a young girl’s  relationship with a Vietnam Vet.

In the spirit of #metoo, I’m sharing my short story, “White Bird Rising,” a piece I wrote about a violent childhood sexual abuse experience, (trigger warning) that was published originally in The Malahat Review, Issue: Winter 1992/93. To my sisters and fellow survivors, remember the body may be broken, but the spirit will overcome. I wish hope and healing for everyone in 2018!

White Bird Rising

you have to pay to read this story I think -- ask Kelly for blurb? can we legally have a blurb if a magazine owns it?

IMAGE FROM WEBSITE WITH THE STORY-- I met Jeremy at the American embassy in Delhi, India, when I was only seventeen and wild and free in a foreign land. It was 1977 and I had just graduated from missionary high school in the Himalayas and longed to lose myself in the enchanting chaos that was India...
