I was born in Richmond, Kentucky, with a restless heart that eventually led me to New York City and back again. I am a graduate of Transylvania University and Sarah Lawrence College, where I earned a BA in studio art and an MFA in fiction writing. My stories and poems have been anthologized, and I am a contributor to several online magazines. I created Write Your Passion, a 90 day program to help writers find authentic voice and dedicate to daily writing practice. Currently, I’m at work on a series of romantic short stories and a book about Mary Magdalene; I also visit small groups to present my talk Untangling Mary Magdalene. I live in Lexington, Kentucky, with a man and two pugs where I paint barefoot, aim to tell the truth, and dream.
