“Each friend represents a world in us, a world possibly not born until they arrive, and it is only by this meeting that a new world is born.” -Anaïs Nin
I’m glad you’re here. Take a sec and introduce yourself, if you’d like. Because not every conversation can start in the Costco food court. Although many do. I’ve had a few there myself.
My latest: This creative nonfiction piece, called House Keys, was published in print and online by Hypertext in Dec. And here’s a bluesy bit of flash non-fiction called Hogtied Heart, published on Nov.30 at The Manifest-Station.
Even with my move to British Columbia, I’m still a speaker and blogger with the international mental health non-profit The Stability Network.
And I like to keep my favorite piece here: it’s this 2018 essay for the New York Times on growing up with a mother who had undiagnosed psychosis.
Book stuff: I’m working on a novel, Human Devices, about an American photojournalist in South Africa during the Mandela elections. As for my previously represented and unsold manuscript, Jump: A Memoir About Skating and Survival, after two years of stewing and brewing, it’s undergoing a radical revision. In other words, I’m not giving up on it.
