arlauthorsalonWhat a kick to read at  Arlington Author Salon at Kickstand Cafe in Arlington on Thursday, April 5th, 2018. The theme that night was Just Kidding: A Humorous Take on Raising Humans, and I got to rant about my children along with writer and Managing Editor for McSweeney’s Chris Monks, and Jane Roper, author of the awesome memoir Double Time.

Created and taught a two-day  seminar titled “All About Memoir” in fall of 2016 at The Inn at the Oaks on Cape Cod

Nice to be mentioned/linked to in this podcast interview with Brainchild editor-in-chief Marcelle Soviero in which she talks all about the mag and what they’re looking for from writers

My Brainchild Interview

The lovely Carissa Halston of Literary Firsts invited me to be the nonfiction reader at the July 22, 2014 event. What a hoot…loved it!

The fine folks at The Vermont Studio Center and The Sustainable Arts Foundation awarded me a fellowship for two weeks of quiet writing time! Looking forward to it…this is a prize for writers with young children and they also provide money for childcare. Very thankful!

“The Memoirist” was nominated for a Pushcart Prize by the editor’s of Antioch’s new online lit mag, Lunch Ticket! Thanks Guys!
