When it comes to writing prose, I am all about variety is the spice of life. I've been writing since I was a kid but only recently for an audience.
For me, writing is more than a creative outlet; it also helps me make sense of the world. My curiosity about life and how we live it is insatiable. I am forever asking the questions, big and small. By telling my stories and sharing my perspectives, it is my hope that readers find connection, that they see themselves in what I write or that they find a new understanding.
My style has been described as akin to "thinking aloud."
